Holdsworth pondering changes

Aldershot

Dean Holdsworth will surely be contemplating changes as he searches for the magic formula needed to kickstart Aldershot's season away at Torquay.

The Shots suffered a second successive defeat at the weekend as they went down 2-0 at home to York, a fifth loss of the opening nine games of their League Two season.

Holdsworth has demanded a reaction and must decide whether to freshen up his XI at Plainmoor, with the likes of Josh Payne, Alex Rodman, Michael Rankine, Guy Branston, Myles Anderson and Kwesi Appiah all in contention.

Midfielder Peter Vincenti serves the second game of his three-match suspension while Ross Worner (back) and Craig Stanley (broken leg) are long-term absentees.

Shots face a tough task if they are to turn around their fortunes against draw specialists Torquay, who have only lost once in the league this term and are unbeaten on home soil.
