Ben Harding: Set for his return

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Torquay United and Burton Albion at Plainmoor.

Torquay boss Chris Hargreaves will be forced into picking a new central midfield pairing for the visit of Burton.

The Gulls welcome the Brewers looking to close the five-point gap between themselves and safety but they will be without Joss Labadie, who picked up his 10th yellow card of the season for diving in Saturday's defeat to Accrington, and Lee Mansell who limped off with five minutes remaining.

Their absence could open the door for Ben Harding to return to action for the first time since picking up a foot injury in October. Hargreaves confirmed that the midfielder is "100 per cent ready" while Damon Lathrope is also pushing for a recall.

Jayden Stockley was suffering from a chest infection over the weekend which saw him drop out of the side and he will be assessed by United's medical team in the build up to kick-off.

Damien McCrory is expected to return to the reckoning for Burton when the Brewers travel to Torquay.

The full-back missed the defeat at Bristol Rovers at the weekend after suffering a dead leg during the draw at Rochdale on Tuesday night.

McCrory's return means striker Michael Symes (knee) should be the only injury absentee for manager Gary Rowett.

"I don't see any reason why Damo won't be okay," said Rowett. "So it will only be Symesy who is out. I don't think he'll be quite ready to come in, just because he hasn't trained enough."
