Torquay manager Paul Buckle has a full-strength squad available for the visit of Shrewsbury in the League Two play-off semi-final first leg.

Striker Jake Robinson is on loan at Plainmoor from Shrewsbury, but is eligible to face his parent club in the play-offs.

Robinson joined the Gulls on loan in January on a deal until the end of May, and Shrewsbury were on the wrong end of that decision when he scored twice against them in a 5-0 rout two months ago.

Buckle confirmed: "Jake can play on Saturday and I've been asked a lot of questions about him.

"I can't speak for Shrewsbury, but Jake has been a wonderful signing for us.

"He's been instrumental in everything we've done. The boy is looking forward to the game."

David Raven is battling to be fit for Shrewsbury's play-off semi-final first leg at Torquay.

The right-back is struggling with the thigh strain which forced him to miss the final day 3-0 win over Oxford, an injury which was aggravated in training having picked up a dead-leg in the penultimate game of the season against Cheltenham.

Jermaine Grandison stepped in against the U's and will battle it out with Raven for a place at full-back should he recover in time.

All three of Shrewsbury's loan players - Mat Sadler, David Davis and Niall Canavan - have been cleared to play, while midfielder Steve Leslie also comes back into the frame following the completion of his successful two-month spell with Hereford.

But manager Graham Turner will be wary of the threat posed by Shrews striker Jake Robinson, who is on loan with the Gulls and eligible to play against his employers.

Robinson moved to Plainmoor in January on a deal until the end of May, with no clause included which prevents him from taking part in meetings between the two sides. He made Town pay the price for that decision when he bagged a brace in a 5-0 romp for Torquay in March.
