Ben Harding: Looking to return

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Torquay United and Accrington Stanley at Prenton Park.

Ben Harding is set to return to the Torquay squad for the visit of Accrington.

The midfielder has been out for four months with a foot injury but is now fit again and available for selection.

Billy Bodin (ankle) and Elliot Benyon (thigh) missed the 3-1 loss at Chesterfield last weekend and the Gulls medical staff will assess them before kick-off.

Boss Chris Hargreaves will not include trialist James Harper in his squad. The former Doncaster midfielder played in a midweek friendly as he looks to earn a deal with the Gulls but Hargreaves confirmed he will not involve him against Stanley.

Defender Laurence Wilson will begin a three-match suspension for Accrington when they travel to struggling Torquay.

Wilson was dismissed against Bury on Tuesday, with James Beattie's side valiantly battling on with 10 men to claim a point in a 0-0 draw against one of the teams who are sitting below them.

They face another such team this week and may be without striker Kal Naismith, who has missed Stanley's last two fixtures with a hip problem.

Forward George Bowerman will be hoping for a recall to the starting line-up after Beattie elected to utilise Danny Webber instead against the Shakers.
