Match Preview

Stanley suspended for Gulls Torquay will be without the suspended Craig Stanley for the visit of Port Vale. The midfielder, on loan from Morecambe, is serving the second game of a two-match ban after picking up 10 yellow cards. The Gulls could also be without fellow midfielder Gavin Tomlin who is struggling with a hamstring injury picked up in last Saturday's 3-0 win at Bradford. Tomlin, who scored in that victory before sustaining the problem, has not suffered a tear and will be monitored closely ahead of kick-off. Boss Paul Buckle has no other problems to contend with as he leads his side into the vital run-in, where the play-off chasing Gulls play promotion rivals in four of their remaining five games. Port Vale will be without Doug Loft. The midfielder was this week ruled out for the remainder of the season having ruptured his hamstring in last Saturday`s 1-1 draw against Southend. Defender Lee Collins and midfielder Gary Roberts are available for selection despite being caught up in an alleged incident at a Stafford nightclub in midweek. An official statement released by the club read: "These allegations will be fully investigated by the club and dealt with internally, as deemed appropriate." Centre-back John McCombe was withdrawn safely in the second half of last weekend`s disappointing draw as he risked a 10th yellow card of the season and a subsequent two-match ban. That means, aside from Loft, caretaker manager Mark Grew has a full-strength squad at his disposal for what will be an important fixture in Vale`s bid for a play-off place.

Match Report

Woodwork denies both sides Torquay extended their unbeaten run to eight matches after a goalless draw with Port Vale Both sides hit the woodwork in a frenetic final five minutes as Chris Zebroski cracked an angled drive off the Vale post in the 85th minute. On the counter attack, Vale sub Sean Rigg smashed a big dipper off the face of the United bar. United central defender Chris Robertson then had a goal ruled out by the assistant referee as stoppage time approached. Recalled Billy Kee fired an early warning shot just wide, which spurred the Valiants into waves of attacks. Home skipper Lee Mansell made a superb block to deny Vale's Robert Taylor as he let fly from the left and at the other end Valiants right back Adam Yates blocked a goal-bound shot by Seagulls forward Jake Robinson. Zebroski came closest to scoring in the first half after shrugging off the attention of three Vale defenders and crashing a thumping drive just wide from the right. As half time approached, Eunan O'Kane also went close with an angled drive from the right. United began the second half as they finished the first, in the ascendancy and on the front foot. Kevin Nicholson's corner from the right was met with a downward header by central defender Guy Branston but the ball flew wide.
