Football - Marquis set to miss derby

Torquay look set to be without striker John Marquis when they face local rivals Plymouth on New Year's Day.

The Millwall loanee has a cyst in his groin which he has been struggling with since the Boxing Day draw with Bristol Rovers and has returned to his parent club for treatment.

But there is better news for boss Alan Knill who expects his other on-loan striker Jayden Stockley to return from Bournemouth ahead of the clash after treatment on a back problem.

Full-backs Dale Tonge (illness) and Tom Cruise (knee) played in the 3-1 loss to Exeter despite fitness issues and are are set to retain their places.
