Torquay United captain Sean McGinty is viewing Saturday’s match against Barrow as one that can propel United back on course to achieve National League survival.

“It’s a very important game and it will be tough,” said Sean after training on Friday. “We’ve had a fantastic week and I think the lads are starting to gel after the addition of a few new faces.”

United’s 1-1 draw against Macclesfield last Saturday seems to have brought renewed intent and focus to the 1st team squad.

“We got a good result last week [against Macclesfield] and it was very encouraging considering it was against the team at the top of the table.

“I think the organization we showed last week was a lot better. If we can take that into Saturday and try and take the game to Barrow, and cut out the silly goals we have been conceding, then I think we’ll be able to hurt them at the other end.”

McGinty is well aware that it is up to the team to lead the way on Saturday. The team must be the one to spark the fans.

“We just needs all of the support that we can get – it is down to us. If we start strongly then I’m sure they’ll be behind us.

“It’s going to be a tough run-in, but it’s far from over yet. We’ve got some big matches coming up and this is the first one of those against the teams around us in the table.

“I’m really looking forward to it and I can’t wait to get out there.”
