Johnson's sights set on 'six pointer' against Bromley

Torbay Weekly

Torquay United manager Gary Johnson has described Saturday's home game against Bromley as a 'six-pointer' as the Gulls seek to boost their National League play-off chances after three successive draws.

Still smarting from a controversially disallowed 'winner' at Wealdstone (1-1) last weekend, United (11th) have lost only twice in 13 games, and Johnson - he took sub Klaidi Lolos off only ten minutes after sending him in west London - is hoping to have skipper Asa Hall, Dan Martin and Dan Holman back from injury this weekend.

"Bromley (8th) are one of the teams we have to catch, so Saturday is a six-pointer now," said Johnson, who was frustrated at United's failure to turn long periods of pressure into a comfortable win over lowly Wealdstone.

An opportunist equaliser by Ben Wynter earned a point there, before Keelan O'Connell's 'winner' was chalked off two minutes from time.
