Torquay boss Martin Ling has a selection dilemma at right-back with Joe Oastler returning from suspension.

The 22-year-old has been a regular in the Gulls' line-up since moving from QPR in 2011 but he was missing on Tuesday after a red card against Bristol Rovers.

That opened the door for Daniel Leadbitter to make his full debut for the club in the victory over high-flying Gillingham and Oastler's availability means Ling has a decision to make.

Ian Morris and Lloyd Macklin will miss the rest of 2012 but the rest of the squad is fully fit as they look to maintain their unbeaten record at Plainmoor this season.

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley faces a selection crisis in attack.

Kevin Ellison opened the scoring against former club Rotherham in midweek but a yellow card collected in the 2-1 defeat was his fifth of the season and he must serve a one-match ban.

Striker Richard Brodie serves the second match of a three-game suspension following his straight red in last weekend's 1-0 win over Southend.

Top scorer Jack Redshaw is doubtful having picked up a knock against Rotherham, as is fellow forward Lewis Alessandra who missed Tuesday's encounter at the New York Stadium after tweaking his hamstring in training on Monday.

Bentley has responded to the situation by recalling rookie Dan Parkinson from a loan spell at Vauxhall Motors despite him never having made a senior start for the Shrimps.

Full-back Robbie Threlfall (thigh) stays on the sidelines, while Danny Carlton (knee) remains a long-term injury absentee.
