The right-back missed last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Northampton and the disappointing late 2-2 Boxing Day draw at home to Bristol Rovers, after his red card against Rochdale.

But, after completing his ban against Torquay, he will be back in the fold for the trip to Barnet on New Year's Day.

Manager Dean Holdsworth, who welcomed back Peter Vincenti, Troy Brown and Anthony Tonkin against Rovers, is unlikely to have any new injury or suspension concerns to deal with for the Gulls test.

Olly Lancashire remains sidelined with his abdomen complaint but fellow long-term absentee Craig Stanley is closing in on his return from a broken leg and is a couple of weeks off a comeback.
