Spotlight on Torquay: Torquay hope to cash in over the next eight days
Bristol Rovers take on Torquay tomorrow
TORQUAY United manager Martin Ling believes that the next three games will go a long way to defining whether his side are genuine promotion contenders.
Torquay are a point off the top seven and only four adrift of the automatic promotion places before they visit the Memorial Stadium tomorrow.
"I think we're coming to crunch time," said Ling, pictured.

"The next three will take us on to 15 games, which I always think is the point where you can start to see where you stand.
"There's nine points available in the space of eight days, which obviously makes the next week important.
"Bristol Rovers away, a derby for both clubs, speaks for itself, Gillingham are top of the league and Morecambe, although they are in mid-table, have a very good away record."
Ling rested nine-goal leading scorer Rene Howe as Torquay slipped out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after losing to Yeovil on penalties.
Ryan Jarvis was offered a chance to start in a much-changed side and Ling said: "I will have some selection posers before we go to Bristol, and that's just what I wanted to have coming out of the Yeovil game.
"I now know that I will be naming seven subs who, when I look round at them on the bench, can all do the job."
