Match Preview

Macklin doubtful once more Lloyd Macklin is still an injury doubt for Torquay as they prepare to face Rotherham in Saturday's npower League Two clash. Winger Macklin has been struggling with a calf problem for the past seven days and the Torquay management have targeted next weekend's game with Shrewsbury for his potential comeback. Meanwhile, Daniel Leadbitter still requires longer to recover from a hamstring problem. The summer signing from Newcastle has yet to make his debut for his new club but may be available for the match with the Shrews. Otherwise manager Martin Ling has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from ahead of the top-of-the-table clash, after his players came through the 2-2 draw with Cheltenham in midweek unscathed. Rotherham have no new injury problems as they bid to reach the top of the npower League Two table. The Millers were denied first place after a late goal earned Accrington a draw on Tuesday and put Andy Scott's side just behind leaders Morecambe on goal difference. Midfielder Mark Bradley has missed Rotherham's last two games with a hamstring strain and he remains a doubt. Scott will definitely be without goalkeeper Jamie Annerson, defender Johnny Mullins and midfielder Paul Warne (all knee). The trio are long-term absentees. Scott made just one switch against Stanley, bringing Danny Schofield back into the fray after he completed his one-match suspension, and the XI who started that game could face the Gulls.

Match Report

Gulls fight back for point Torquay fought back from 3-1 down after 34 minutes against Rotherham to rescue a dramatic draw thanks to goals by in-form left back Kevin Nicholson and target man Rene Howe. The Millers dominated the opening exchanges and should have made more of their early advantage. Lewis Grabban pounced on a deflection off Gulls right back Joe Oastler to open the scoring from a few yards out in the third minute. Millers skipper Ryan Cresswell then headed the visitors 2-0 up from Danny Schofield's ninth minute corner. Billy Bodin scored his second goal in two games with an 11th minute strike from the edge of the box before Grabban grabbed his second goal of the game to restore Rotherham's two-goal advantage. Gareth Evans crossed from the left and Grabban got a deft flick on the cross to just take the ball out of Bobby Olejnik's reach as the home keeper went full stretch. Torquay were given another lifeline when Nicholson followed up his own shot to head over visiting keeper Conrad Logan in the 41st minute. The home side got off to the perfect second-half start as Howe beat Cresswell before clipping the ball over Logan to make it 3-3 on 47 minutes. Torquay came within a whisker of winning when Eunan O'Kane's 70th minute free kick whistled just past the post from 20 yards. Then in the 90th minute, Bodin's left-foot shot from 15 yards beat Logan and smashed off the upright.
