Football - Saah back to boost Gulls

Torquay defender Brian Saah is available for the trip to Burton on Saturday having been suspended for five weeks.

The 26-year-old centre-back saw red at Bradford on December 8 and was given a three-match ban, but a series of postponements around the festive period means the Gulls have only played three times since.

It remains to be seen whether manager Martin Ling recalls Saah or sticks with on-loan Reading defender Angus MacDonald who has been deputising.

Captain Lee Mansell played in the 3-2 defeat by AFC Wimbledon on New Year's Day with three stitches in a knee wound but that injury has healed in time for him to feature.

Former Swindon striker Billy Bodin was given the all clear to return to training after a scan on his ankle and he looks likely to come into contention but right-back Joe Oastler is having treatment on his ankle.

Striker Ryan Jarvis (cracked rib and punctured lung) has upped his recovery while Ian Morris (Achilles tendon) and Lloyd Macklin (broken metatarsal) are set to step up their rehabilitation.
