Match Preview

Howe to cope without Rene? Torquay will be without striker Rene Howe for the meeting with leaders Morecambe. Howe was sent off in the 2-0 defeat by Shrewsbury last time out, meaning he has to sit out the clash with the League Two high-flyers. Otherwise, the Gulls have a full complement of players to choose from. The club have offered new deals to Kevin Nicholson, Chris Robertson and Lee Mansell, and manager Martin Ling is hopeful of getting their signatures shortly. "The initial contract has been positive in all departments," he told BBC Radio Devon. "I don't foresee any problems. But you never know until you get to the nitty gritty of finances and alike to see if players really want to commit." Morecambe boss Jim Bentley is hoping several of his sidelined players will return. The Shrimps are unbeaten on their travels in the league this season, winning four of their five away games. But they have been hindered by a spate of injuries and missed the chance to go three points clear after last week's defeat to Bristol Rovers. Bentley's squad has been stretched to the limit in recent weeks with injuries to captain Will Haining, midfielder Gary McDonald, strikers Phil Jevons and Lewis Alessandra, as well as long-term absentee Paul Scott. Defender Scott is recovering from knee surgery and will definitely miss out but the other four are nursing less serious knocks. Haining is considered the most likely to feature against the Gulls while the other three are all doubtful.

Match Report

Ellison spares Shrimps blushes Kevin Ellison maintained Morecambe's magnificent unbeaten away league run with a brilliant 82nd minute solo goal that salvaged a 1-1 draw at Torquay. Ellison skipped away from the halfway line and raced towards United's goal, where he rounded home keeper Bobby Olejnik before slotting home. It was a superbly-taken leveller and came only seconds after Morecambe had two off the line clearances. Goalkeeper Barry Roche made a point blank reflex save to deny substitute Chris McPhee from six yards. When McPhee followed up with a measured side foot towards the corner, Laurence Wilson made a superb goal-line clearance. United had taken the lead through skipper and top scorer Lee Mansell in the 62nd minute after a bright start to the second half. Billy Bodin, who rattled the bar with a shot in the last minute of the first half, split the visiting defence with a clever ball into the edge of the Morecambe penalty area, and Mansell swooped on the ball to sweep in his fifth goal off the inside of the far post and out of the reach of the diving Roche. Late on, Roche made a great save to deny McPhee when he latched on to Bodin's wayward shot, and at the other end, Ellison blazed over the bar from the edge of the box. Earlier in the half, dangerman Ellison forced a fantastic save from Olejnik before finally being rewarded with his cracking leveller.
