Match Preview

No new worries for Ling Torquay manager Martin Ling has no new injury worries and could name an unchanged side to face Crawley. The Gulls maintained their unbeaten start to the league programme by beating Aldershot in midweek. Striker Rene Howe and midfielder Lee Mansell have scored two league goals each this season and will again be expected to carry their side's goal threat as they go in search of their first home win of the campaign. Young defender Daniel Leadbitter remains Torquay's only absentee. The 20-year-old is yet to make his Gulls bow after agreeing a two-year deal at Plainmoor this summer following his release from hometown club Newcastle. A persistent hamstring injury has kept him out of action so far this season. Scott Davies should return to the Crawley squad for the trip. The midfielder was left out against Southend on Tuesday night as a precaution due to a slight strain, with Scott Neilson handed a first start of the season in his place. His return means boss Steve Evans will have a selection dilemma after Town romped to an impressive 3-0 win. Centre-half John Dempster was available after a one-match suspension on Tuesday but could not even make the bench, with Evans sticking with Kyle McFadzean and Charlie Wassmer. Midfielder Dannie Bulman is expected to miss out again with an ankle injury while skipper Pablo Mills (ankle) and fellow defender Jamie Day (back) are still on the sidelines.

Match Report

Red Devils down Gulls Scott Davies' super strike set Crawley on their way to a 3-1 victory at Torquay as the Football League newcomers moved to the top of the table. Dean Howell's free-kick rebounded off the Torquay wall and out to midfielder Davies. He flicked the ball up before letting fly with a thumping controlled volley from 25 yards out that gave home goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik no chance. Olejnik then prevented Crawley going 2-0 ahead when he tipped Kyle McFadzean's bullet header onto the face of the crossbar following a Davies free-kick. Crawley piled on the pressure and Torquay found it hard to get out of their own half and mount a serious challenge on the visitors' goal. Just before half-time central defender Charlie Wassmer powered home a second goal, with a thumping six-yard header to greet Davies' corner. The Red Devils increased their advantage almost immediately from the kick-off, with skipper Josh Simpson heading home from Howell's cross. United gained some consolation when skipper Lee Mansell scrambled in his fourth goal of the season after 50 minutes. The ball ricocheted around the Crawley area before crashing off Mansell and in. However any hopes of a revival were slim as Crawley stepped up a gear and Davies forced a brilliant 82nd-minute save from Olejnik.
