Torquay manager Paul Buckle has no new injury or suspension worries ahead of the clash with Rotherham.

Striker Billy Kee strengthened his claim for a starting role against the Millers after scoring a second-half hat-trick for the Gulls' reserves against Swindon.

Fellow strikers Martin Gritton and Lloyd Macklin will be competing for a starting place after also netting on reserve duty in midweek.

Midfielder Damon Lathrope made a big step to try and force himself back into first-team reckoning following ankle ligament damage after playing for the reserves, as did defender Danny Senda who featured on his return from a hamstring injury.

Both players could return to Buckle's squad as Torquay look to consolidate their place in the League Two play-off places.

Rotherham will make the lengthy trip without injured skipper Ryan Cresswell.

Cresswell broke his collarbone in last week's win over Aldershot and the defender will be out for at least two months after undergoing surgery during the week.

Fellow defender Danny Coid remains a doubt with the hamstring injury which kept him out of the Aldershot clash and boss Ronnie Moore is not holding out too much hope of him being fit.

Johnny Mullins will continue at right-back if Coid doesn't make it, with Luke Ashworth filling in for Cresswell.

But if Coid is passed fit then Mullins will move into the centre.

Moore has no other problems to contend with as his side aim to continue their recent impressive form which has seen the Millers go unbeaten in their last five League Two games.
