Goalkeeper Chris Lewington has said the squad are keenly aware of the mistake it would prove to be if we were to underestimate Torquay this weekend.

Our form of late, whilst up and down in terms of results, hasn’t been too bad and we are sitting nicely in the middle block of the table, but Alan Knill’s Torquay side sit bottom of the table after a disappointing season in their eyes, and recently results haven’t been that great for them – although they did secure an unexpected victory over Southend last time out so some confidence will have returned.

When speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, Lewington pointed to the Southend game as proof of what could happen to us unless we are on the ball and at our best during the match.

‘Torquay are a very hard working side, very resilient and their position at the bottom of the league is a bit false, we don’t underestimate them by any stretch of the imagination. We’ve been working really hard and our home form has been really good and hopefully we can take that form into Saturday.’

Or course the Torquay match also has extra significance for defender Brian Saah who revists his former club so he’ll be interested in getting one over his former employees, and Lewington knows the impact that he has had on our backline this campaign given his experience.

The keeper obviously hopes that we can return to winning ways this weekend following the Oxford disappointment, and of course that over the remainder of the season we can continue to improve and push a bit higher in the league.
