Wrexham can come away from Torquay with a victory

Torquay's Plainmoor ground
1 of 1

Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Torquay have had a nightmare start to the National League season and their woes could continue with a defeat to high-flying Wrexham at Plainmoor.

The Devonians have got used to struggling at the wrong end of the table, having finished 18th in 2015-16 and 17th last season.

And another relegation battle looks on the cards after two draws and six defeats in their opening eight games.

Torquay's defensive record of 20 goals conceded is the worst in the division and will need to be addressed by caretaker-manager Robbie Herrera, who has been holding the reins since Kevin Nicholson was dismissed last month.

Herrera guided Torquay to a 1-1 draw at home to Chester last Saturday – ending a sequence of six straight defeats – but the outcome was still a massive disappointment after an injury-time equalising goal.

Torquay are going through a tough time and look ideal opponents for Wrexham, who are up with the early-season promotion pace-setters.

The Red Dragons have the joint-best defensive record in the division and are up to third after last Saturday's 2-0 win at home to Bromley, their third success in a row.

Dean Keates's side look on course to improve on last season's 13th place and are value to bank maximum points from their long trip to the English Riviera.

Leyton Orient are up to second after back-to-back wins and look a big price to take maximum points at tenth-placed Boreham Wood.

There was a massive overhaul at Orient this summer with new owner Nigel Travis determined to draw a line under last season's relegation from the Football League.

And there were early teething problems as the Londoners lost their first two away games 2-0 at Sutton and 6-1 at Bromley.

However, they have triumphed at Woking (2-0) and Maidenhead (1-0) on their last two road trips and have every chance of beating mid-table Wood, who have lost their last two games.
