Will Atkinson: Pushing to start

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Torquay United and Southend United at Plainmoor.

Torquay's new signing Jayden Stockley will miss their clash with Southend this weekend.

The Bournemouth loanee made his debut as a second-half substitute in their defeat at Scunthorpe but has returned to the Championship side for treatment on a calf strain he sustained in training and he will not feature against Phil Brown's men.

French midfielder Damien Mozika looks set to continue in midfield after impressing since arriving on a non-contract agreement at Plainmoor while John Marquis will partner Elliot Benyon once more.

Alan Knill's men are now rock-bottom of Sky Bet League Two and are currently four points from safety.

Will Atkinson and Ryan Leonard both return to the fold for high-flying Southend's trip to bottom-club Torquay.

Atkinson missed last weekend's 3-1 FA Cup victory at Chesterfield due to suspension while fellow midfielder Leonard has been sidelined of late with a hamstring injury.

Striker Cauley Woodrow serves the final game of his three-match ban and so misses out at Plainmoor.

Freddy Eastwood was back on the bench against the Spireites last weekend having recovered from a lengthy knee injury and he will hope for some involvement against Torquay having enjoyed 65 minutes for the club's reserves in midweek.
