Grant back from ban

Accrington manager John Coleman will have Bobby Grant back in contention for Torquay's visit to the Crown Ground.

Grant has been in top form this season but was suspended for the 2-0 win at Burton on Tuesday after picking up five yellow cards.

But Coleman will have to decide whether to recall him after Billy Kee's impressive performance at the Pirelli Stadium.

Kee gave Stanley the lead and could partner Michael Symes in attack once more.

Meanwhile, Dean Bouzanis will be looking for another clean sheet after thwarting Burton on his debut.

The on-loan Liverpool keeper is likely to get the nod ahead of Ian Dunbavin, who was forced off against Barnet in the FA Cup last weekend.

Chris Turner (ankle) and Leam Richardson (groin) are still ruled out.

Torquay are boosted by the timely return of central defender Kieran Charnock.

Charnock missed Tuesday's 3-0 home win over Cheltenham through suspension but boss Paul Buckle will be forced to change his winning line-up.

Central defender Mark Ellis collected his fifth caution of the season and now serves a one-match ban so Charnock is set to resume in the back four alongside Chris Robertson.

On-loan Tottenham full-back Adam Smith (leg) is an injury doubt after being substituted in the 89th minute on Tuesday.

If the England Under-19 international fails to make it, then experienced left-back Kevin Nicholson, who replaced Smith in the closing moments, will start.
