Torquay boss Paul Buckle has a full-strength squad to choose from for the home clash against Lincoln.

The Gulls are boosted by the return of three players who have enjoyed brief cameo appearances away from Plainmoor.

On-loan Ipswich striker Ronan Murray is back after featuring for the Republic of Ireland`s Under-21s in Portugal.

And promising youngsters Saul Halpin and Lathaniel Rowe-Turner are ready for selection after appearing in action for Derby's reserve side.

Halpin impressed County manager Nigel Clough by hitting a hat-trick and setting up a goal in the 7-1 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Buckle's side are unbeaten in five matches and sit just one point off the play-offs and only four points behind Shrewsbury, who occupy the third automatic promotion place.

Lincoln will monitor Danny Hone and Ashley Grimes ahead of the match.

Defender Hone joined an already-lengthy injury list when he damaged a shoulder during the defeat at Port Vale in midweek.

However, the problem is not as bad as initially feared and he could be patched up in time for the game in Devon.

Leading scorer Grimes has missed the last two matches but his ankle injury is improving all the time and there is a chance that he could travel.

With Stephen Hunt (ankle), Luke Howell (hamstring) and Delroy Facey (shoulder) still out, boss Steve Tilson has recalled experienced striker Drewe Broughton from his loan spell at AFC Wimbledon to boost numbers.
