Torquay United head into the trip across the country to face Gateshead in our opening game of the new season without centre half Krystian Pearce.

The defender continues to struggle with the injury he sustained in pre season and has been ruled out of the match.

Speaking to the Official Site manager Chris Hargreaves explained.

‘Krystian is devastated he will miss the 10 hour trip to Gateshead but he’s about a week away from being fit again. Otherwise, everyone is fit, ready to go and we’re all looking forward to it.’

With the news of Tom Cruise’s short term deal now, and his contention for the game, competition is good in the remainder of the defence, and Hargreaves explained that his short term deal is literally a month by month basis but it gives him the chance to get back on track properly.
