Team News:

Manager Ady Pennock has a fully fit squad to choose from, with the exception of injured winger David Fitzpatrick. New signings Ollie Cook, Steve Arnold and Luke James are in contention to make their Bluebirds debut’s at Plainmoor.


Torquay United’s Recent Form:

Torquay picked up an impressive point against league leaders Macclesfield last weekend at Moss Rose.

Macclesfield dominating proceedings in the first half though the visitors created the better of the chances.

The hosts thought they had won it when Danny Whitehead scored from 25 yards with 18 minutes to go, but Elliott Romain leveled the scores after a mistake from the Macclesfield keeper.

Barrow’s Recent Form:

The Bluebirds haven’t been in league action since our 1-1 draw against Tranmere Rovers at the FBSS, back in early January. This is thanks to an FA Trophy tie st Brackley Town and postponements against Guiseley & Sutton United.

Barrow took the lead in that one, Byron Harrison tucking a penalty away after Grant Holt was brought down by Steve McNulty.

The home side defended their lead resolutely in the second half but they couldn’t hold on, conceding a late equaliser in second half stoppage time.
