Accrington boss John Coleman has concerns over defensive duo Leam Richardson and Kevin Long ahead of the home clash with Torquay.

Full-back Richardson has missed the last three games with a groin injury and is unlikely to make his comeback against the Gulls.

On-loan Burnley centre-back Long sat out the 3-2 midweek victory over Crewe and may miss out again.

Coleman has no other worries and could name the same starting line-up following two successive victories, although winger Sean McConville is pushing for a recall after stepping off the bench against the Railwaymen before netting the winning goal just three minutes later.

Young midfielder Alan Burton has joined non-league side Marine on a month's loan.

Stanley will be attempting to win a third successive game for the first time this season.

Torquay boss Paul Buckle has a fully-fit squad to choose from when he takes his side to the Crown Ground.

Danny Potter is likely to keep his place between the posts following a five-game unbeaten run which has coincided with him taking up goalkeeping duties from Scott Bevan.

The 31-year-old former Cambridge stopper has only conceded three goals in those five games, helping the Gulls to the verge of the play-off places.

Lathaniel Rowe-Turner is also set to retain his place in the side, keeping regular left-back Kevin Nicholson on the bench.

Winger Danny Stevens is pushing for a recall after stepping off the bench to score the goal that eventually earned his side a point against Cheltenham last weekend, while Ryan Gilligan and Eunan O'Kane are also available for recalls following recent substitute appearances.
