Danny discusses talking points ahead of the NL clash

BACK AT WORK?

There’s no doubt the Gulls’ will be well rested with 8 days since their last outing against Taunton, and you’d hope Hall & Moxey in particular will be refreshed as they sat out that Trophy clash. It’s a similar story for Woking who come into the match off the back of an 11 day rest and 4 wins on the bounce. The Cards have had an exceptional season, occupying 3rd spot prior to Tuesdays fixtures. They’ll be hot favourites to make it 5 in a row Wednesday evening over a new look, fresh faced Torquay side.

TEMPERATURE

The Yellow Army will not want to see a repeat of Saturdays farce which saw the game called off just 60 minutes prior to KO. Woking have been proactive by already moving this fixture, but with another cold night in store, it will be touch and go at the Kingfield Stadium. Regular engagement with the fans would be ideal to ensure fans are not left ‘football-less’ and out of pocket once again. Fingers crossed for the pitch, fingers crossed for a result!

NEW RECRUITS

The loan tally has peaked to 6 once more, meaning one unlucky player will miss out on the squad. Lawrence, Mensah, Aguiar, Crole & Tope have all come through the revolving door at Plainmoor over the last few weeks, and will no doubt be pushing hard for a starting berth and eager to impress. At a crucial stage of the season, there’s no time for sentiment and there’s little margin for error as United seek to stave off relegation. For the Gulls’ to survive, these players simply need to deliver immediately.

A FRONT TWO?

Jarvis has seen one strike-mate go in the form of Goodwin, but he’s got double the company now with the two new additions. You’d think Tope will be favourite to link up with the big-man, and given he’s played a lot this season, albeit from the bench, match fitness should not be a concern. He’s by no means prolific, but if the on-loan Sutton man can provide and deliver, that will go some way to getting a positive result.

THE OPPOSITION

If someone had said to you in August that Woking v Torquay in January would see 4th against 22nd, you’d put a good wager down thinking it would be the Gulls’ slugging it out with the big boys. Woking have had a remarkable season as they look to secure FL status for the first time in their history. Darren Sarll has done a sterling job there in getting the Surrey side mixing it with the Wrexham’s and Chesterfield’s of the division. It’s where Torquay want to be, it’s where they need to be, but at present, that remains a distant dream.

EVANS OR AGUIAR

Baring injuries, Lapslie and Hall look shoe-ins to start on Wednesday evening. Evans and Aguiar are remarkably similar in the way they play, and fitting them into this Gulls’ side will prove tricky. It looks like a job for either one of them, but who gets the nod is anyone’s guess. Evans has shown glimpses in his tenure at Plainmoor, but nothing to leave Gulls’ fans purring. Ricky comes highly recommended by those at Swindon, and again has struggled to make an impact, but he could be the man who is given the opportunity once more.
