This match is being shown live on Setanta this evening and is an interesting fixture . Following relegation, Torquay have started from scratch, with a whole new set up, both on and off the pitch, including 15-16 new signings ! Pre season results have been promising and there is great expectation at Plainmoor. Think that they will have a good season and not many teams will relish the very long trip west, only 30 or so Grays supporters are making the trip for example.

Paul Buckle the new boss, started at Brentford and has spent his entire career in the lower/ non leagues and knows the game, at this level, inside out. He has made full use of his contacts and got together a team that should go well this year, but may take a few matches to fully gel. Grays are a team that under performed last year and sold a number of promising players, but have also made some interesting signings, have new management, a decent pre season and as always for them, look to be full of goals.

Think this will be an entertaining match, between two teams I will be watching closely this season, "over" for me, with both defences needing time to get acquainted.

4 points "over" 2.5 goals 2.04 asian line.

Good Luck.
