MacKenzie poised for pro debut
Kirtys MacKenzie is set to make his professional debut for Torquay at Port Vale.
The Gulls are without Aaron Downes, who is suspended for one game after his dismissal in the 4-2 win over Rochdale, and manager Martin Ling has opted to hand the vacant centre-back slot to the first-year professional.
In addition to Downes' suspension, Danny Stevens is not yet fully fit following a thigh injury.
Stevens is on the comeback trail after a thigh strain, but has been out for a month and has not been able to test the injury under match conditions.
Fellow winger Niall Thompson marked his debut against the Dale with an assist, and looks set to keep his place in Ling's starting XI.
The Devon club go into the game full of confidence, unbeaten in their first three league games, and having lost just one of their last eight meetings against Vale.
