The 20-year-old, who spent three months with the Gulls at the end of last season, will provide defensive cover until January 6.

"Angus is here for six weeks to see if he was the same player we had here last time, because he was fine for us last time," manager Martin Ling said.

"It didn't really work for him at Wimbledon and I think he would be the first to say his chances at Reading are very slim. We know he did a good job for us and I am comfortable about him as a player.

"The thinking all season is that we are one light in natural centre-halves. So with four natural centre-halves at the football club now we know we'll be ok for these nine games."

Torquay make the long journey to York on Saturday looking to win for the first time this month.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
