Team news
Cheltenham Town will once again be without Alan Bennett (shoulder) and Kaid Mohamed (ankle) this evening with neither proving fit enough to feature. Mark Yates has no further injury worries however and is likely to keep the same starting line-up as he did in the 2-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge.

Torquay will be missing the presence of Danny Stevens (thigh) tonight and will also be missing Saul Halpin for the visit of Cheltenham Town.
