Match Preview

Gulls face Gills minus Morris Torquay will be without injured winger Ian Morris for their clash with Gillingham. Morris has been ruled out of action for at least two months, and will require an operation, after a scan revealed a piece of bone floating in the 24-year-old's knee. However, manager Martin Ling is boosted by the return to the first-team squad of attacker Billy Bodin. The youngster missed the Gulls' 1-0 defeat to 10-man Bradford last week as he was on international duty with Wales Under-21s. But the on-loan Swindon forward is set to go straight back into the starting line-up to face the Gills. Torquay are trying to put an end to a run of six League Two matches without a win. Gillingham's injury woes continue with the news that Danny Kedwell and Dennis Oli will miss out while Charlie Lee is also doubtful. Leading scorer Kedwell sustained a toe ligament problem during last weekend`s 1-1 draw against Port Vale while fellow forward Oli is sidelined with a hamstring complaint. Midfielder Lee was replaced after 55 minutes of the encounter carrying a knock and faces a late fitness test. The news only adds to manager Andy Hessenthaler's lengthy list of wounded, with captain Barry Fuller this week discovering he needs an operation to correct a knee problem and will miss the rest of the season. Fuller was already sidelined along with Andy Frampton (calf), Danny Jackman (knee), Jack Payne (knee), Danny Spiller (ankle) and Adam Birchall (knee). Defenders Garry Richards, Matt Fish and Joe Martin all passed late fitness tests last week to start against Vale and have fortunately not suffered any ill-effects. Midfielder Lewis Montrose does come back into contention having served a one-match suspension last Saturday.

Match Report

Gills romp to victory Gillingham threw away a two-goal lead before a second-half charge gave them a 5-2 victory at Torquay. The visitors took the lead in the sixth minute when former Gulls forward Jo Kuffour swept home from close range after cleverly latching on to a headed through ball from skipper Matt Lawrence. It was the on-loan Bristol Rovers striker's first goal since teaming up with Gillingham. He doubled that tally in the 39th minute when he slid in at the far post after Torquay failed to clear Luke Rooney's free-kick. Torquay pulled one back two minutes after the break when defender Chris Robertson powered home a header at the far post from Eunan O'Kane's corner. Four minutes later Torquay were level as Danny Stevens raced away down the left and slotted an angled drive past diving Gillingham goalkeeper Ross Flitney and in off the far post. United's joy was short-lived as the tricky Kuffour was felled in the penalty area by O'Kane and Rooney rifled in the 56th-minute penalty. With 12 minutes remaining Rooney embarked on a fine run after intercepting Kevin Nicholson's cross and unselfishly teed up Frank Nouble to hammer home an angled drive from the edge of area. And in the 89th-minute winger Chris Whelpdale's cross-cum-shot beat Robert Olejnik in the Torquay goal to wrap up the scoring.
