Torquay manager Paul Buckle will again be without Damon Lathrope for the clash with Bury.

The midfielder has been unavailable since sustaining an ankle injury against Aldershot at the end of September and will again miss out.

The Gulls have failed to win in their last seven league games and Buckle is targeting an improvement defensively against the Shakers.

"We have lost our last two games at home and we will have to improve on that," Buckle told the club's official website.

"I thought in both of those games we took the play to Aldershot and Macclesfield but we came away with nothing which is something that can happen.

"We need to get back to keeping clean sheets, we must remain nice and solid on Saturday because Bury are a good side; a fancied side who will be pushing for the play-offs."

Bury boss Alan Knill is again without striker Andy Bishop.

The highly-rated forward has been struggling with tendonitis in recent weeks and will see a specialist about the problem.

Knill has no other injury or suspension concerns as his side seek to maintain their recent fine run of form.

The Shakers are unbeaten in their last six npower League Two outings and lie fourth in the table.

Yet Knill is urging his players not to underestimate a Torquay side who recorded a thumping 3-0 win at Gigg Lane last season.

Knill said: "They are a good side who have got momentum and belief from their good finish last season."
