Preview - Torquay Utd (a) National League Play Off Semi-Final

Ian Burchnall's Magpies are flying high following a last minute win over local rivals Chesterfield in the first play off eliminator which was watched by over 4,500 vocal Notts fans at Meadow Lane.


Their reward, a semi final encounter away at Torquay United, a team that for a large part of the season looked to be running away with the title. However following a slump in results, mainly due to suffering some really bad luck with injuries which included influential striker Danny Wright, Gary Johnson's men rallied to halt a bad run that saw them replaced by Sutton at the top of the table but still managed to play out a second placed National league finish.


A look at the recent form radar and despite Notts having better recent form Torquay obviously look to have had the better of it in all other areas.
