After a convincing defeat at the hands of Notts County, the Stones look to bounce back against table toppers Torquay United.

The Gulls fly high

9 games in, Torquay find themselves at the summit of the National League. Having only experienced a solitary defeat (against Eastleigh), Torquay have won a whopping 7 matches. On the face of things, it does not look too optimistic for the Stones. However, there may be a twist.

The twist comes in the fact that Torquay are yet to play any of the current top 7. 8th placed Bromley are the highest ranked team that they have played so far, in which the Gulls took a 2-1 victory.

There may be a point to be made that Torquay have yet to face their toughest tests, could Wealdstone prove a challenge for them?

Stones continue search for a win

Friday night against Notts County was not a night to cherish for Wealdstone. From the first whistle to the final whistle, the Stones were overwhelmed. Chances were hard to come by, and even harder to stop at the other end. Simply put, Notts County showed their class.

Thus, the timing of having to face the team at the top of the league is not exactly ideal. But football is a funny game is it not? There’s nothing I’ve seen in my time watching that would tell me that a Wealdstone result is impossible.

It may not be easy, but hopefully the Stones give as good as they get on Tuesday night.

The visiting Coach

Torquay have been under the watchful eye of Gary Johnson since 2018. Johnson indeed brought success soon enough, guiding Torquay to the National League South title 10 points clear of second.

Johnson will certainly be looking to replicate these heroics after their bright start to this season.

Blast from the past

Wealdstone will be looking to improve on their record against Torquay in the 18/19 season. Suffering two defeats, fans can breathe a sigh of relief that none of the goalscorers in these matches are still at Torquay.

However, there are indeed some familiar faces in the Torquay defence. Club captain Kyle Cameron and Ben Wynter are still featuring, as is Asa Hall in midfield.

Indeed, Wealdstone fans will be hoping for a different result than that of two seasons ago.
