Aldershot will be without Ben Herd as they look to maintain their play-off push in the home clash against Torquay.

The defender was forced off with what initially appeared to be a serious ankle injury in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Port Vale and wasn't expected to feature again until pre-season.

But the problem is not as bad as the club first feared and manager Kevin Dillon has since confirmed that the player could be back in two weeks.

Jamie Young is set to continue in goal with Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz again having to settle for a place on the bench, while Andy Sandell (hamstring) and John Halls (groin) should be back in action within a week or so.

Dillon's men currently lie fourth in the table after a six-game unbeaten run.

Torquay goalkeeper Scott Bevan is an injury doubt.

Bevan (thigh) was substituted just after the hour mark of United's 5-0 home win over leaders Rochdale on Saturday.

His place went to on-loan Southampton keeper Michael Poke, who has not played since the 2-1 home defeat by Port Vale on Saturday February 13.

Poke was replaced by Bevan at half time in that match after suffering a groin injury but has been back in training for the past two weeks.

United's other injury doubt is winger Wayne Carlisle, who has been ruled out for a month by a knee injury but is back in training.

United are unbeaten in three following Saturday's win.
