Accrington Stanley Vs Torquay United, Sat 26 Feb 2011

Published Add your comment

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.
