Match Preview

Duo missing for Gulls Torquay will be without the influential pairing of Rene Howe and Billy Bodin for the visit of Swindon on Boxing Day. Striker Howe was sent off for the second time this season during the 3-1 defeat at Accrington last weekend and serves the first game of a four-match ban while on-loan wide man Bodin has been barred from playing by his parent club. However, manager Martin Ling will be buoyed by the return of midfielder Lee Mansell to the matchday squad after a one-game suspension. Mansell will resume captaincy duties and is likely to replace Ian Morris in the starting line-up. Defender Brian Saah is close to a return following a groin injury but is unlikely to be included as Ling's men look to bounce back from their first defeat in seven matches against Accrington. Swindon have no new injury or suspension worries. Defender Joe Devera is close to a comeback after an ankle ligament problem and played 45 minutes in the Samsung Win A Pro Contract match at the County Ground in midweek but is unlikely to feature. Striker Alan Connell, however, could play a part against the Gulls after shaking off a hamstring niggle. The former Grimsby frontman picked up the injury during the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Section area semi-final victory over Southend on December 6 but has been involved in full training for the last three days and is set to travel to Devon.

Match Report

Atieno ends Robins run Taiwo Atieno's first-half volley was enough to give Torquay a 1-0 win which ended Swindon's 15-match unbeaten run. With 34 minutes gone Eunan O'Kane's corner was headed towards goal by defender Chris Robertson and Atieno was on hand to lash the ball high into the net from close range. At the other end, Robertson made a brilliant block to deflect Matt Ritchie's strike over the goal following a slip by central defender Mark Ellis on the edge of the Torquay penalty area. Atieno could have doubled his tally at the start of the second half as he raced on to an O'Kane through ball but the striker's shot was brilliantly saved by Robins goalkeeper Wesley Foderingham. Swindon put Torquay under intense pressure with United goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik making a brilliant stop to deny substitute Ronan Murray in the 76th minute. Moments later, Murray made a fine goal-line clearance to keep out Ellis' header. Ritchie looked to have scored with a thundering drive but it was inadvertently blocked on the way to goal by Swindon sub Alan Connell as Torquay held on.
