Barkhuizen: Hopes to play for hosts

Barkhuizen: Hopes to play for hosts

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Hereford and Torquay United at Edgar Street.

Richard O'Kelly will be hard pushed to make any changes to his starting XI for Hereford's vital clash at home.

O'Kelly watched his relegation-threatened side take their survival scrap to the final day with last weekend's stunning 3-0 victory away to high-flying Crawley.

The Bulls require a repeat performance if they are to avoid the drop, while also needing Barnet to drop points away at Burton.

One dilemma for O'Kelly, who is not expected to have any new injury or suspension concerns, will be whether to recall 11-goal leading scorer Tom Barkhuizen after he missed out at Crawley due to illness.

Joe Colbeck stepped in and bagged the opener before being replaced by Yoann Arquin, who went on to score the other two goals.

Simon Clist returned to the bench at the Broadfield Stadium following his lengthy absence and will again hope to be involved, while full-backs Ryan Green (knee) and Benoit Dalibard (hamstring) continue to be monitored but are unlikely to feature.

Meanwhile, Torquay are set to go into this clash boasting a fully-fit squad.

The Gulls travel to Edgar Street, where the Bulls will be battling for their Football League survival, knowing victory will clinch automatic promotion providing Crawley fail to win at Accrington.

Manager Martin Ling kept faith with an unchanged starting line-up for last Saturday's heartbreaking late 1-1 draw at home to Crewe.

The setback prevented Torquay from taking a two-point lead into the final day and sees them instead all square with Crawley and only one point ahead of Southend, with two of the three sides facing the lottery of the play-offs.

Ling could well opt to name the same XI this weekend, although the likes of Ryan Jarvis and Taiwo Atieno are pushing for recalls in attack.
