TORQUAY United have 15 games to awaken from a mid-season slumber and mount a serious late challenge for the play-off positions in the Vanarama Conference.


The Gulls have slipped back in the race for promotion and our away form has been a major culprit, but we travel to Wrexham tomorrow for a meeting with a side also in desperate need of points to climb toward the top end of the table


“I like the Wrexham manager, he’s a decent bloke, and it’s a club expected to do well, like ourselves,” said United boss Chris Hargreaves. “They’ve been a Football League club and will want to get back up.


“For whatever reason, they’ve not managed to do as well as they’ve wanted this season but we can’t worry about anybody else. We’ve just got to win as many games as we can between now and the end of the season.


“Our away form has not been good enough in the league and we need to put that right. We’re looking forward to it but we know our away form has to improve.


“There has to be that immense desire when you put the shirt on and I’ve got that message across this week. I don’t want fans travelling to games and seeing wishy-washy performances. The minimum requirement is the team come off and you see we are a good team, regardless of the result.


“I still believe we can get results and get wins, but we need to get them quickly because games are running out.”
