Match Preview

Branston blow leaves Gulls in a pickle Torquay boss Paul Buckle will be without experienced defender Guy Branston for the visit of Oxford to Plainmoor. The experienced centre-back hobbled out of the action 73 minutes into the 2-2 draw at Hereford with a hamstring problem which Buckle quickly blamed on the difficult training surfaces used during the recent big freeze. He told the club's official website: "We've lost Guy Branston so that's disappointing for us. His hamstring has gone. "Again, we've been training on Astroturf and chopping and changing, and it's been an unwelcome spell. "It's come at the wrong time but, on the performance at Edgar Street, we didn't look like a team who had not played for three weeks." Other than Branston, the Gulls have no new injury or suspension problems as they look for the win that could take them into the play-off zone. Oxford travel south with a refreshed Jake Wright in the squad. The defender recovered from a broken foot to make a substitute appearance in the 2-0 defeat to Southend on New Year`s Day. Ben Futcher is likely to make way as the 24-year-old pushes for a start. Manager Chris Wilder could not hide his disappointment following the home reverse, saying: "We were abject, shocking, all over the place. I don't know whether to write it off because some players do have off days and don't come to the table." On-loan defender Leigh Franks continues to give Wilder concern as he struggles with a hamstring problem. Midfielder Paul McLaren will make his U's debut and striker Tom Craddock will be hopeful of starting for the first time since December 4 when he picked up a one-match suspension. Striker Matt Green will hope to be involved against his former club.

Match Report

Clinical Midson stuns Gulls Oxford striker Jack Midson scored a stoppage-time winner to complete his hat-trick and secure a stunning 4-3 win at Torquay. Oxford took the lead against the run of play in the 35th minute when Tom Craddock beat two players before finding the corner of the net with a shot from the edge of the penalty area. The goal obviously lifted Oxford who went further ahead from a 42nd-minute corner when Midson turned in Harry Worley's downward goal-bound header. Torquay replied within a minute as top scorer Elliot Benyon meandered through the visitors' defence before slotting home under pressure from Oxford skipper Jake Wright. With Torquay pressing, Oxford countered with great effect again after 64 minutes and went 3-1 up when Midson swooped to score his second. But Benyon reacted first to score his second after 73 minutes and 12th of the season when Oxford keeper Ryan Clarke spilled substitute Billy Kee's rocket. And Six minutes later Kee levelled as his angled shot from the left edge of the box looped off an Oxford defender over Clarke and in. Benyon twice had chances to put Torquay ahead before Midson scored in the first minute of stoppage-time, converting substitute Alfie Potter's cross from the right.
