The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

WITH only one win in each of their last five games, it would come as lit­tle sur­prise to many that both sides strug­gled to show any real qual­ity through­out.

The weath­ered con­di­tion of Frat­ton Park’s pitch was never go­ing to help mat­ters, though the end­less lobbed balls by both teams made for a dull spec­ta­cle.

The home side never seemed com­fort­able with Torquay’s ever chang­ing for­ma­tion, which at times saw them play­ing with four strik­ers and at other times just one.

Their in­abil­ity to cre­ate any clear op­por­tu­ni­ties go­ing for­ward was the main is­sue for boss Richie Barker.

Torquay, how­ever, ap­pear re­ju­ve­nated since Chris Hargreaves took over and the teams above will be look­ing over their shoul­ders.
