Torquay are boosted by the arrival of Bristol City goalkeeper Steve Collis on an emergency loan ahead of their final League Two game of the season at home to champions Notts County.

The former Yeovil keeper will replace injured on-loan Southampton stopper Michael Poke (groin), who played throughout the 3-0 win at play-off-chasing Bury last Saturday.

Scott Bevan, United's other senior keeper, was ruled out of the trip to Bury by a thigh injury.

The win at Gigg Lane extended the Gulls` unbeaten run to seven matches and was their sixth successive clean sheet.

Paul Buckle's side have not conceded in 601 minutes - just four short of the clean-sheet record they set in the Conference.

It is unlikely Buckle will make any changes to his outfield 10 following their recent success.

County have a couple of injury doubts ahead of the trip.

But manager Steve Cotterill refused to name the players in question.

The game at Plainmoor will be Kasper Schmeichel`s last for the club before the highly-rated goalkeeper`s contract is cancelled.

Veteran stopper Russell Hoult could play some part as he did against Cheltenham last weekend when he replaced the Dane late in the game.

Luke Rodgers, Matt Hamshaw, Jamie Clapham, Karl Hawley, Ade Akinbiyi and Johnnie Jackson are all available for recalls should Cotterill wish to make changes to his starting line-up.

Cotterill said: "The title may be won but we are still playing for professional pride. It will be a very tough game against a side that are in form having won their last five matches."
