Football - Defensive dilemma for Knill

Torquay will be forced into a defensive reshuffle at Burton following Krystian Pearce's a red card on Saturday.

PA Sport Report

The centre-back picked up a second yellow card in the second half of the 0-0 draw with Mansfield and he will now serve his ban after manager Alan Knill admitted he had 'no arguments' about the decision.

But Knill will not be able to call on defender Aaron Downes to step in. Despite the Australian's recovery from knee surgery being much quicker than expected the trip to the Pirelli Stadium will come too soon.

Midfielder Ben Harding is also on the comeback trail from his foot injury but is not expected to feature.
