Port vale love to score goals. 64 netted in 32 games, they travel to Plainmoor having just been knocked off pole position after a defeat to Morecambe. The pace of Vincent, Myrie- Williams on the flanks and top scorer Tom Pope are the key attacking threats for the Vale striking 44 goals combined. They will want to return to winning ways against a Torquay side on the slide.
After spending the first half of the season looking up the table towards the playoffs they will be anxiously looking over their shoulders now. The absence of ill gaffer Martin Ling, has seen the Gulls lose 5 straight games and they look in serious danger of being dragged into the relegation mire.
Interim boss Alan Knill will hope to bring the experience to guide the club to a steadier footing. On paper this looks like an away banker but then again, football’s not played on paper!
