Holdsworth: Has a fully-fit squad

Team news ahead of Tuesday night's League Two clash between Aldershot and Torquay United at the Recreation Ground.

Luke Guttridge should make his first start of the season for Aldershot as they look to bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Northampton.

The midfielder, last season's Supporters' Player of the Year after grabbing eight league goals, had to start as a substitute against the Cobblers due to a knee injury.

He did come off the bench on the hour mark and nearly grabbed an equaliser for the Shots but hit the angle of the post and the crossbar when well-placed.

Guttridge's return means manager Dean Holdsworth will have a fully-fit squad to pick from for the first time this year.

Torquay will come to the Recreation Ground full-of-confidence after they recorded a 2-1 win at promotion hopefuls Bristol Rovers.

Daniel Leadbitter remains Torquay's only major injury doubt as they look for back-to-back away wins.

The 20-year-old defender is yet to make his Gulls bow after agreeing a two-year deal at Plainmoor this summer following his release from hometown club Newcastle.

A persistent hamstring injury has kept him out of action so far this season.

Manager Martin Ling has no injury worries and could name an unchanged team from the side which maintained their unbeaten start in the league by coming away from Bristol Rovers victorious.

The 2-1 win was made all the sweeter as Pirates boss Paul Buckle had swapped Torquay for Bristol this summer and taken ex-Gulls Scott Bevan and Chris Zebroski with him.
