Torquay boss Paul Buckle has no new injury or suspension problems to worry about for the home clash with Gillingham.

That means the Gulls chief could name the same starting line-up for the fourth successive game, despite the 2-1 defeat at Morecambe last time out.

If that is the case, centre-back Chris Robertson will be asked to continue in the unusual position of right-back, a role he is happy to continue in - for now.

He told the club`s official website: "If the gaffer wants me to do a job at right-back I am happy to play there, but he knows and I know I am a centre-back by trade."

That would also leave the likes of on-loan winger Ashley Hemmings, Billy Kee and Damon Lathrope on the bench.

Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler will hand late fitness tests to Danny Jackman, Joe Martin and Danny Spiller.

Defender Jackman had to be withdrawn after 71 minutes of the 1-0 win over Northampton last weekend with a knee injury, Spiller picked up an ankle problem despite playing the full game and fellow midfielder Martin has been struggling with a hamstring injury.

The trio only returned to training on Thursday morning but will be given as much time as possible to declare their fitness.

Midfielder Jack Payne, who was an unused substitute last weekend, will be in the matchday squad despite a foot injury, but defender Simon King continues to struggle from an ongoing ankle problem that has hampered him for over 18 months.
