TORQUAY UNITED showed no signs of rustiness following an enforced break and the Gulls will be looking to add Wrexham to their list of scalps tomorrow.

Gary Johnson's side have made an excellent start to the National League season and remained top of the table following the 2-1 win against Halifax at The Shay on November 21 courtesy of goals from Asa Hall and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans.

A 10-day break followed but Torquay picked up where they left off by beating high-flying Wealdstone 2-1 on Tuesday.

Billy Waters was the hero for the Gulls.

Although the Stones, promoted from National League South last term, took a first half lead, Waters struck twice after the break as Torquay registered an eighth victory in 10 league outings.

Johnson was delighted with the character shown by his side to come from behind and clinch three points, with Waters scoring the winner one minute from time.

“I’m really pleased with the result, of course I am,” said Johnson.

“We had a terrific first 20 minutes without an end product, we didn’t play well, but this group keeps battling away.

“Obviously we saw the game out and it was another late one, but that’s a good sign for us that we can create opportunities late on.

“The games are 95 minutes long and you have to have a team that can battle to the very end, when other teams might just be tiring. We have to believe that we don’t have to tire.

"I think also the way we play – although we didn’t play well today – we were relentless, in as much as we had a lot of attacks, a lot of corners, so they had to concentrate very hard.

“They had to work very hard to stay with us. Towards the end of games, people get a bit more tired, and it’s no shock to me that we can score goals right at the end."

Under the new tier system, Torquay will be allowed to have fans at Plainmoor against Wrexham for the first time this season because of the coronavirus pandemic but the capacity has been significantly reduced.

Johnson, whose side have only lost once in the league this term when they went down 2-1 at Eastleigh on October 6, is delighted to welcome fans back against Wrexham.

“We look forward to seeing the Yellow Army face to face, and there’s no better time for Torquay United than now," said Johnson.

Torquay have warned Wrexham supporters that they won't be allowed to attend the game.

A club statement read: "Following the Government announcements last week regarding the welcome return of supporters to football, the club has agreed with the local Safety Advisory Group our Socially Distanced capacity, which is significantly reduced.

"Season ticket holders will get priority on match entry, then individual match tickets will be sold to the general public, we will not be allowing away supporters into the ground.

"There is strictly no purchase or collection allowed on the matchday from the stadium. Tickets will be available online and over the phone only.

"None of the club’s bars or catering outlets will be open.

"Please see our supporters code of conduct which every attendee must follow here. The club will have a zero tolerance policy for those that do not comply, and you would be asked to leave the stadium and refused entry to future matches.

"Lastly, we apologise for the changes in the match day experience, but without these measures we would not be allowed to open to spectators and the club want to ensure everyone is safe and to minimise the risks of COVID-19. Therefore please work with us and follow the protocols and guidelines.

"The National League has called a meeting of clubs today and we hope that we might be able to publish our plans for the return of spectators within the next 24hours.
