Torquay United travel to Hartlepool United in the televised fixture on BT Sport on Saturday evening and it’s looking like an early test of promotion credentials in the National League.
The Gulls have made a fine start to the season and our latest Predicta game on www.torbayweekly.co.uk features the big game for United, plus three more from the National League.
Our final two games in the Predicta competition come from the Premier League, with Liverpool hosting a dangerous West Ham side, and Manchester City travel to struggling Sheffield United.

This week’s Predicta – can you beat chief sports writer Dave Thomas?
SHEFFIELD UNITED v MANCHESTER CITY - City win 3-0
Stories of City’s demise are exaggerated, and somebody is going to suffer soon - it could be the struggling Blades.
BROMLEY v EASTLEIGH - a draw 1-1
Set-pieces could prove telling here between two physically strong, similar sides who don’t give much away.
STOCKPORT COUNTY v WEYMOUTH - County win 3-0
Goal-shy Weymouth would love a point, but they will struggle to get it, especially if free-scoring County strike first.
YEOVIL TOWN v CHESTERFIELD - a draw 2-2
Both struggling for league form, Yeovil hit by injuries/suspension - this should be a close, possibly feisty affair.
HARTLEPOOL UNITED v TORQUAY UNITED - a draw 2-2
A ‘six-pointer’ already, but Torquay will go for it and have strong options on the bench - all the recipes for a belter!
LIVERPOOL v WEST HAM UTD - Liverpool win 3-1
The improving Hammers will have a go but attack not defence will settle this one and Klopp has the firepower.
