Pitt’s prepared for Gulls

“We’ll give them respect because they’re seventh in the division above but if we approach the game in the same way we did against Chelmsford, we’ve have a good chance” said Pitt.

“They’re like many teams at this level in that they’re not in your face from kick-off, so we need to take the game to them early on.

“In a way we’re at a disadvantage that we have a nice ground and a nice pitch, so they’re less likely to decide they don’t fancy it.

Pitt travelled to Torquay to see their 2-1 loss against Barnet last Saturday, and knows what to expect from the Gulls: “They changed from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 midweek, and I think that was a reaction to the defeat against Barnet, but we’re prepared for them whichever formation that use.

“When they play with wide men both wingers are dangerous and they’re physical up front. Their captain takes all of their set pieces and everything in midfield goes through him.

“In contrast to us, they have lots of experience, they’re used to the travel and competing after a long trip.”
