Torquay United are back on home soil on Tuesday evening with the visit of Chester (kick-off 7.45pm).

This rearranged fixture will be their first of three home games in a week as they face a Chester side who sit in 17th place in the table, just four points above Torquay.1024px-Torquay United FC.svg1

The Gulls will be looking to build on our excellent win at Gateshead on Saturday and gain revenge for the heavy defeat that we suffered at Deva Stadium just before Christmas.

Luke Young misses out with a badly gashed leg that he sustained at the weekend.

“Youngy didn’t know how bad the cut was,” revealed player-manager, Kevin Nicholson. “It was only a little bit of blood on his sock and a bruised feeling. It was only when he took off his sock off that the extent of the damage was apparent.

“We had already used three subs so I’m glad he didn’t look under his sock as he may have had to come off! He should be available in a week or so; it looks worse than it is.

“I’m happy for him as he’s worked very hard to be part of our run in after his knee injury. It would have been cruel if he would have missed out on the rest of the season due to an unfortunate cut.”

There is better news as Dan Lavercombe and Nathan Smith have returned to training.
