Match Preview

Gulls in fine fettle Torquay manager Paul Buckle has a fully-fit squad to choose from when his side host Crewe. The Gulls recorded an impressive 1-0 win over Carlisle in the FA Cup third round on Saturday and Buckle could stick with the same team. Defender Guy Branston made an unexpected return to the back four against the Cumbrians following his quick recovery from a hamstring complaint and after coming through the game unscathed he should keep his place. Danny Stevens also came in to replace on-loan Wolves man Ashley Hemmings on the wing in the only other change from the 4-3 defeat by Oxford, and after setting up the only goal for Eunan O'Kane he could again get the nod. Crewe midfielder Ashley Westwood is expected to be fit. Westwood limped off during the home victory over Wycombe on Saturday and was replaced by fellow academy product Danny Shelley. However, the signs are that he has recovered from the knock, giving boss Dario Gradi the chance to name an unchanged side at Plainmoor. "I think Ash is fine so we could go same again. But I will ask if anyone feels washed out because they have played a lot of games recently," said Gradi. "I wouldn't mind the opportunity to pick the likes of Danny Shelley, but I just can`t find a place for him in the team at the moment." Winger Byron Moore came through the Wycombe win unscathed following a recent knock, while last season`s top scorer Calvin Zola was named on the bench for the first time since November and could be involved once more.

Match Report

Gulls on the up Torquay edged back up to 10th in the table by ending Crewe's five match League Two unbeaten run with a 2-1 win at rain-lashed Plainmoor. Gulls manager Paul Buckle kept faith with the side that had knocked League One Carlisle out of the FA Cup and was rewarded with a sparkling first-half performance. Saturday's match-winner Eunan O'Kane put the home side 1-0 ahead when he latched on to a left-wing cross from forward Chris Zebroski at the far post to lash the ball home. Crewefell further behind in the 16th minute following Kevin Nicholson's corner from the left which was met by Zebroski at the near post with a superb glancing header. Torquay tired in the second spell and Crewe reduced the deficit when recalled midfielder Danny Shelley thumped an unstoppable strike past home keeper Scott Bevan from 25 yards.
