Hargreaves issues rallying cry

Torquay boss Chris Hargreaves has called on the Plainmoor crowd to play their part in their 'huge game' against Fleetwood this weekend.

The Gulls are letting children under 12, who accompany a paying adult, in for free on Saturday in a bid to boost the atmosphere at a ground where they are yet to win since Hargreaves took charge.

And with his side seven points from safety following a 1-1 draw at home to Burton and a 3-0 loss at Hartlepool Hargreaves has issued a rallying cry to his club's support.

"There may have been only 1,500 against Burton, but they got behind the team and the atmosphere was good, so we want to get as many here as possible against Fleetwood," he told the Torquay Herald.

"It's another huge game for us. Everyone knows what's at stake and what we have to do.

"The Plainmoor crowd is a massive part of that."
