Torquay V Rochdale at Plainmoor - Match Preview

Last updated : 08 November 2013

Same again for Gulls

Torquay have no fresh injury problems as they welcome Rochdale in the first round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.

Winger Courtney Cameron missed their first victory since mid-September last Saturday with a back strain but he is set to return at Plainmoor.

But Ben Harding's foot injury and Billy Bodin's knee problem sees the pair both miss out as Alan Knill's men look for back-to-back wins.

Knill, who extended the loan stay of young Leicester midfielder Jak McCourt this week for a second month, is taking this tie seriously as he looks for the financial rewards of a cup run.

Rochdale striker Scott Hogan is hoping to return to the starting line-up.

Hogan has not started a league game since October 5 due to a heel injury but stepped off the bench for the last 15 minutes in the midweek defeat to AFC Wimbledon and came through unscathed.

Fellow forward George Donnelly remains doubtful with the unspecified injury that kept him out on Tuesday night, while skipper Peter Cavanagh (Achilles) faces several more weeks on the sidelines after returning to light training.

Manager Keith Hill could be tempted to make one or two unforced changes as his side bid to bounce back from two successive defeats.
