Lee Mansell: Available for Torquay

Team news ahead of Saturday's FA Cup first-round clash between Torquay United and Harrogate Town at Plainmoor.

Torquay captain Lee Mansell has overcome a sickness bug and is available.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been given the all-clear to face the Blue Square Bet North side but young defender Kyrtis MacKenzie is rated 50/50 after suffering from the same bug.

Striker Ashley Yeoman has resumed training after suffering from a foot injury, while midfield duo Ian Morris and Lloyd Macklin remain on the sidelines for a game that could provide the Gulls with a financial windfall.

Manager Martin Ling told the Western Morning News: "It's about money - it sounds cruel to say it like that, but for me it may mean that I can sign a player later in the season who can help us in the league.

"Winning and losing on Saturday may be the difference between signing that player and not being able to.

"We all dream of Manchester United away in the third round, but there's decent money to be made before then."
