Torquay continue without manager Martin Ling as the Gulls boss continues to recover from illness.

The club confirmed that assistant boss Shaun Taylor will continue to manage the side in the absence of Ling having taken charge for the last two games.

And Taylor will be without top scorer Rene Howe as he begins a two-match ban for his 10th yellow card of the season on Saturday.

The 14-goal striker could be replaced by Ashley Yeoman in the starting line-up but the club are also actively looking to sign another forward before the match.

Right-back Joe Oastler will undergo a fitness test after limping off at Cheltenham with a recurring ankle problem.

Meanwhile, midfielder Ian Morris may be as close to a month away from a return to action after a speedy recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon 19 weeks ago.

Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander expects to select from an unchanged matchday 18.

Gareth Evans made way for Ryan Crowther at half-time during last weekend's 2-2 draw with Bradford but the winger has shaken off the knock that hindered him and is fit to feature.

Veteran striker Jon Parkin came off the bench to earn the Cod Army a point with a second-half penalty and is pushing for a start following his second scoring contribution from the bench in as many games.

Former Preston midfielder Barry Nicholson missed out against the Bantams following more problems with a persistent back complaint and will be assessed having received treatment throughout the week.

Centre-back Youl Mawene (foot) continues is rehabilitation but is not ready for first-team action.
