League Two: Barnet v Torquay

Barnet will have to try and stop Torquay’s bid for a record run of wins away from home in a season without West Brom loanee Paul Downing.

The defender required an X-ray after falling badly on his neck during the Bees’ 0-0 draw with Macclesfield last Friday.

The youngster has returned to the Baggies for further tests but could return for Tuesday’s game with Swindon.

Darren Dennehy returns to the squad after he missed the draw with the Silkmen and is expected to replace Downing.

The Gulls are looking to close the gap to Swindon by equalling their club record of 11 straight away wins in a season and manager Martin Ling has a full squad to choose from.
