Match Preview

As you were for Gulls Torquay boss Paul Buckle has no fresh injury concerns for the crunch clash with npower League Two leaders Chesterfield. With the Gulls chasing a play-off spot and the Spireites looking to secure the title, the fixture has huge implications for both clubs. Buckle has seen his side draw their last three games to take their unbeaten run to 10 matches, but they have slipped out of the top seven. Striker Billy Kee has come off the bench in the last two games and grabbed the equaliser in the 3-3 draw at Burton, so he could have played his way into contention for a start. Craig Stanley, on loan from Morecambe, recently returned to the starting line-up after a two-game ban and he looks set to retain his place in midfield. A first-half strike from Jack Lester settled the match in Chesterfield's favour when the two sides met at the B2Net Stadium. Dean Morgan is a doubt for Chesterfield. A slight thigh strain forced the forward off during the home defeat to Bury on Easter Monday. Morgan is the only concern for manager John Sheridan, who has plenty of options available should he wish to make changes. Defenders Simon Ford and Ian Breckin, midfielders Derek Niven, Ian Morris and Kieran Djilali along with forwards Jordan Bowery and Scott Boden are all available for recalls. Victory at Plainmoor on Friday evening would move Chesterfield five points ahead of second-placed Bury, who host Wycombe on Saturday. Should the Spireites win and Bury fail to do so, then Sheridan`s long-time league leaders would be crowned champions.

Match Report

Gulls draw blank once more Play-off chasing Torquay extended their unbeaten run to 11 League Two matches with their third successive goalless home draw against promoted leaders Chesterfield. Guy Branston came close to scoring in the fourth minute when his powerful header was headed up off the goal-line and on to the bar following Kevin Nicholson's corner from the left. Branston again hit the bar from another Nicholson corner midway through the second half as United tried in vain to get the breakthrough. After bossing the early stages United had to focus when Chesterfield top scorer Craig Davies beat marker Chris Robertson wide on the left and then let fly with a 30 yard dipper. Minutes later Davies then broke down the right channel and sent a dipping shot on the run towards goal that home keeper Scott Bevan was forced to tip over. United countered with Jake Robinson firing a cross across the face of goal and then defender Simon Ford blocked a Billy Kee strike on the 18 yard line. Bevan made a superb save to deny Derek Niven from 20 yards, and then made another excellent block stop to deny forward Deane Smalley from close range, The end to end half ended with Torquay midfielder Eunan O'Kane sending a 20 yard shot just over. United started the second half as they finished the first with Kee's volley screaming just over the bar, before Branston rattled the woodwork once more. In stoppage time Chris Zebroski flashed a header just over from Craig Stanley's corner from the right.
