7:48pm

Torquay go into tonight's match rooted to the bottom of League Two, nine points behind 17th placed Bury and eight points from safety.

They have lost three of their last four matches, while Bury go into the game unbeaten in three and with just one defeat in their last 10 matches.

Bury, however, remain just four points ahead of Northampton in the second relegation place.

7:45pm

Torquay make one change, with captain Lee Mansell coming into midfield for Joss Labadie, who begins a 10-match ban for biting in an incident not originally picked up in a match against Chesterfield in February.

The midfielder, who scored the winner in Torquay's last home game against Rochdale, has been handed a £2,000 fine on top of the lengthy ban for violent conduct.

The Devon club had originally announced an intention to appeal the punishment, handed out following claims that appeared on the Twitter account of Spireites attacker Ollie Banks that he had been bitten by Labadie.

But Torquay decided against it 24 hours later.  

7:34pm

Team news

Bury manager David Flitcroft has made four changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Southend on Saturday.

In come Reice Charles-Cook, Craig Jones, Clive Platt and Daniel Nardiello for Brian Jensen, Chris Hussey, Ashley Grimes and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, who all drop down to the bench.

It is a big night for 19-year-old Charles-Cook, who makes his first start in league football after replacing Jensen at half time at the weekend.

If that switch raised eyebrows then the decision to start with the youngster in such an important relegation battle is sure to crank up the tension on the terraces tonight.

Flitcroft said on Saturday that it was the right decision, for tactical reasons, after losing patience with Jensen's distribution from the back.

Fans will be much more comfortable with the Bury boss's other changes, however, with both Jones and Nardiello returning from injury much quicker than expected.

Jones has missed the last three matches since limping off at Cheltenham on March 1 with a hamstring strain, while the club's leading scorer, Nardiello, missed the trip to Southend with a muscle strain - possibly just rested as a precaution ahead of tonight's relegation six-pointer.

Platt, meanwhile, returns to the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute at the weekend.

 

7:07pm

Full line-ups

TORQUAY: Rice; Tonge, Downes, Pearce, Nicholson; Goodwin, Lathrope, Cameron; Showunmi, Benyon.

Subs: Poke, Harding, Hawley, Yeoman, Stockley, Stevens, O'Connor.

BURY: Charles-Cook; Veseli, Mills, McNulty; Jones, Sedgwick, Tutte, Soares; Mayor; Nardiello, Platt.

Subs: Hinds, Grimes, Hussey, Young, Akpa-Akpro, Jensen, Carroll.

6:55pm

We're in position here at Plainmoor where Bury will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to four matches against League Two's bottom club Torquay United.

Just waiting for team news, but the conditions look to be a far sight better than when the initial fixture was called off due to a waterlogged pitch in February.

The only Bury players out on the pitch here are goalkeepers Brian Jensen and Reice Charles-Cook.

With the way Reice is limbering up it looks like the 19-year-old could be in line for his first league start after replacing Jensen at half time at Southend on Saturday.

A poor decision to select Cook one which will come back to haunt Flitcroft.Why do the oposition always target our players with thug like tactics?,maybe they think they can rattle them.

What a dreadful result,we have allowed a team to beat us caused by our manager once again making poor substitution choices.Your sense of timing is abysmal Mr Flitcroft.Anyone remember the Plymouth game before Christmas?.We couldn't afford to lose this game but we did.Now we are going in to the last 10 games under severe pressure handing the initiative to a fellow relegation contender.These players are not going to keep us up that is a fact,neither are Flitcroft's inept tactics.Lord help us if we lose to Northampton Town.

Well I am signing on in Torquay on my overnight stay.

I am just shocked at the posts above. Shocked. How can you possibly make these statements and not be at the game? Admittedly, we did not play well and the sucker punch came late. Managers make decisions and that's that. How come the same complainers did not have an issue at Wimbldeon or Mansfield? or the come back against Scunny? shall I go on?

Torquay are battling for their lives and should have got one point That's it.

We have plenty of games and we will survive.....Flickers knows what he doing even if some of our fans don't.....Goodnight.

easylife,
are we still not in a relegation fight?

"They're fighting for their lives".......SO ARE WE!!!!!!!!!!

You seriously need to wake up fella and quick. Forget who we've played, the simple facts are we're now 4 games without a win and only 4pts of the drop, that ISN'T good form for any team at the bottom going into the home straight.

Message to Mr Day,
Stop pampering this team with air travel and the like....as it's obviously not having the desired effect in preparation for the game. After this result, i really hope you made them walk home. Some harsh words need to be said to these players either by you or your manager.

That said, i do think we'll stay up....just. It'll be interesting to see who Flickers has his eye on for next season, as a serious push for promotion would require atleast 6 new replacements to this squad.

I'll await my minus marks for easy and Co now.lol

Ok lets be real ! i agree with bits from everyone like Jenson should be back in as now is not the time to blood a young keeper.
lets not forget that Torquey beat Rochdale last week as well !! so why do we have a devine right to win ??
We are in a relagation scrap there is no two ways about it but for heavens sake one poor decision by a manager that in 4 months has got us playing football again is not the end of the world.
we have time to get the 10 points we need to be safe so keep calm and support the club and manager whatever his decision may be

A struggling team does not stay up by dropping your experienced goal keeper and unsettling the team because of an obsession with not having the keeper kick it upfield in ANY circumstance! I was watching Flitcroft go ballistic at Jensen against Fleetwood for clearing his lines when there clearly wasn't an outlet to one of the defenders. He is obsessive and no wonder the keeper (who has played in prem/championship) looked bemused.

mammol,
"lets not forget that Torquey beat Rochdale last week as well !! so why do we have a devine right to win ??"

We don't and that's my point.

We couldn't beat the same Rochdale side who only had 10 men for 50 minutes, we couldn't beat an Accrington side that had 10 men for over 60 minutes and now we've now lost to the bottom of the League. We've collected 3pts out of the last 12, yet certain people think we're still doing ok.

Imo, we have to beat the Daggers this weekend, especially with 2 away games following. Here's hoping!!!

The main problem i see us having is the lack of goals from midfield, which is heaping the pressure on the forwards far too much. I really hope Flickers will address this close season, as it's an obvious area that needs to improve. Goal stats from the Bury FC website show:
Mayor has 4
Soares has 3
Sedgwick has 2
Jones & Proctor have 1 each
Miller, Grimes & Tutte haven't scored.

That's a grand total of 11 league goals from 8 players.....simply put, it's not good enough!

You make some excellent points and some even better stats ShakenCity.The problem for this clubs stems from a lack of continuity on and off the pitch with the constant revolving doors with players and manager leaving throughout this season.

Yes perhaps Flits made an error and maybe it was down to a personality clash or perhaps he simply doesn't fancy Jensen as he didn't sign him.

I think this job is bigger than Flits first realised and now he has to consider that we too are in a dogfight and it's a 10 game season.

I'm not impressed with most of Flit's signings,Nards is our best player although a little lazy at times and Jepo brought him in.

I cannot understand why he brings in players that aren't match fit and will not provide the necessary competition for places.

Our midfield is a joke and to make the hapless Jones our captain beggars belief.

He doesn't inspire me and hasn't got a goal threat,you need to look up to your captain as a man's man and a leader.

Reice cook isn't the answer,he's a rookie and obviously has no ambition wanting to be JENSEN'S understudy for so long when he could have gained experience by going out on loan.

If he is selected for the Daggers game and beyond then this is either a desperate gamble which will pay off, or by Easter when we play York & Scunny we will be back in the bottom 2.

Yes the Chairman has done all he can to finance the club and move it forward but he must take responsibility for employing so many sub Standard individuals and allowing even less interested players to come and play for us to make up the numbers.

It's a fact "BURY FC NEEDS THE LEAGUE MORE THAN THE LEAGUE NEEDS THEM"

Some of the above mentioned comments are even more pathetic than our general performance against the worst team in league 2,

A message to DF start the match on the front foot and get in to the opposition's faces early on or continue to struggle and create precious few opportunities to win matches.

The only team i can see us beating between now and Morecambe is Exeter City purely because we always beat them.

from this so called bury team. the decision by flitcroft to select cook instead
of Jensen was absolutely stupid and definitely cost us the game. will the
the win at Mansfield be our last because all I can see is the occasional draw
and that wont save us from the drop. flitcroft needs to realise we cant score
enough goals and that akpro and platt were poor signings. the conference
is inevitable unless we can get a goalscorer .

Sour grapes are borne out of two long trips and a commitment behind the team.
I just find it interesting that when we won at Wimbeldon and Mansfield, this board was empty with positive praise, when we came back from the dead against Scunny, not much. But the daggers come out when we lose at Torquay.

You are right about HELL FC lol....

The only team i can see us beating between now and Morecambe is Exeter City purely because we always beat them.[/p][/quote]Sour grapes are borne out of two long trips and a commitment behind the team. I just find it interesting that when we won at Wimbeldon and Mansfield, this board was empty with positive praise, when we came back from the dead against Scunny, not much. But the daggers come out when we lose at Torquay. I get it. We are upset. But throwing the baby out with the bathtub water is not the way to approach this.

easylife,
are we still not in a relegation fight?

"They're fighting for their lives".......SO ARE WE!!!!!!!!!!

You seriously need to wake up fella and quick. Forget who we've played, the simple facts are we're now 4 games without a win and only 4pts of the drop, that ISN'T good form for any team at the bottom going into the home straight.

Message to Mr Day,
Stop pampering this team with air travel and the like....as it's obviously not having the desired effect in preparation for the game. After this result, i really hope you made them walk home. Some harsh words need to be said to these players either by you or your manager.

That said, i do think we'll stay up....just. It'll be interesting to see who Flickers has his eye on for next season, as a serious push for promotion would require atleast 6 new replacements to this squad.

I'll await my minus marks for easy and Co now.lol
Congratulations....I am sure you are happy we lost and we are in a Relegation fight".....you will be as equally happy if we achieve the same so you can say to me "SEEE I Told you".

I am sorry, I don't think that way....but you are entitled to your opinion. I am sure we will lose at home to daggers and then Newport and Northampton do you can say "SEEEE Easylife".

Don't worry, I won't be posting anymore....
Now you're just being silly....of course I wasn't happy we lost, but nevertheless not surprised.

Stop getting upset just because others don't agree with your opinion. This is a forum for everyone to have their say....if we all agreed with each other, it'd be pretty boring wouldn't it.

Oh and by the way "SEE" only has 2 "E"s.lol

We're just 10 games away from the end of the season, 10 games that may well affect the club for many years.

Personnel aren't going to change much before the end of the season (both managerial & players) so we have to try and succeed with those we have.

The time for back-slapping/recrim
inations will come after the final whistle of the final match, but until then. although I respect the fact that other correspondents have differing viewpoints, we need to give 100% support to the manager and the players until the end of the season.

For your information Matey i care passionately about our football club and only make my views known in a negative way when i see how poorly our club is run from top to bottom.

One is entitled to an opinion even if it gets up the noses of those who make fly by night visits on this site to pour out their dribble like a baby who's been thrown out with the bath water.

Now spit your dummy out and say something positive about our club instead of criticising others who have far more wit and imagination in their little finger than you have got in your own mind and body.

If we didn't laugh at our horror season unfolding then what else are we to do?.

The Wimbledon result was a flike and down to one players determinstion to score a last minute goal,The Wombles played us off the park.

We got lucky against The Stags and again if they had taken their earlier opportunites we would have lost that game.Confidence is born out of winning matches we have won 9/36 so why doesn't the manager install confidence in this beleagured and average bunch of players?.,that's what he is being paid for.

We have been destined for relegation since the first kick of the season.

It is a fact : old fans from wayback get angry when we can't beat a 10 man team or a bottom club ( I got lynched when I posted criticism in sheer frustration once). I too saw Terry McD, Jimmy Mac & co ( as well as Alex Dawson but I won't elaborate...)
I'm sure we all are united in wishing the shakers well, it seems the bickering is just human nature unfortunately.
Keeping my fingers crossed for saturday already !

So fix Mr F. Next season we need a couple of decent forwards who can bang in 20 goals+ each. O yes, and get our goalkeeper back from Portsmouth

Firstly i am not and never will be your matey,as for wit you flatter yourself as for your opinion,you really are entitled to it,although your opinionated posts constantly score heavily in the negative,probably because it is moan moan moan ,tripe or dribble as you call it.As for saying something positive about our club,i invite you to do just that for a change.
My opinion has obviously got up your nose and as you say quite rightly i am entitled to my opinion just as you are.At this period in time we are where we are and what will be will be,Panic stricken outbursts from so called fans will not help or change that situation,only by getting behind the Manager,team and club as a whole will.How about crawling under a stone --advice you have offered in the past,you never know you may feel much better.
