Torquay United 1 Bury 0
Nasty lunge on Nardiello from the Torquay centre-back
45+1 - YELLOW - Pearce
39 - Cameron lets fly for Torquay with a left-footed strike on the turn that flew over the bar from 20 yards. He immediately goes down in a heap, possibly with a groin strain.
32 - YELLOW - Cameron (time wasting)
Fails to clear the first man...
29 - Soares wins a free kick on the left corner of the Torquay box. Sedgwick to take.

24 - Jones storms on to a Soares ball and fizzes a low shot just past the far post.
19 - Nardiello's volley from 25 yards is well saved.

17 - Loud cheers from the home fans as Charles-Cook panics over a back-pass and slices it into touch at the second attempt.
15 - Danny Mayor's shot is well blocked by Torquay keeper Martin Rice.
Nightmare start from Bury here. Torquay have got the bit between their teeth and they are first to every ball. Chairman Stewart Day shelled out to fly the squad down to Torquay yesterday but they will be walking home at this rate.
8 - GOAL - TORQUAY 1 Bury 0 - Lee Mansell leaves Reice Charles-Cook rooted to the spot with a header, unmarked on the six-yard line, from Dale Tonge's cross from the right.
6 - Benyon shot headed off the line by Mills after the Torquay striker robbed the ball off Charles-Cook. The keeper tried to turn the striker in his box rather than clearing his lines. Not a great start from the youngster.
Torquay go into tonight's match rooted to the bottom of League Two, nine points behind 17th placed Bury and eight points from safety.
They have lost three of their last four matches, while Bury go into the game unbeaten in three and with just one defeat in their last 10 matches.
Bury, however, remain just four points ahead of Northampton in the second relegation place.
Torquay make one change, with captain Lee Mansell coming into midfield for Joss Labadie, who begins a 10-match ban for biting in an incident not originally picked up in a match against Chesterfield in February.
The midfielder, who scored the winner in Torquay's last home game against Rochdale, has been handed a £2,000 fine on top of the lengthy ban for violent conduct.
The Devon club had originally announced an intention to appeal the punishment, handed out following claims that appeared on the Twitter account of Spireites attacker Ollie Banks that he had been bitten by Labadie.
But Torquay decided against it 24 hours later.
Bury manager David Flitcroft has made four changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Southend on Saturday.
In come Reice Charles-Cook, Craig Jones, Clive Platt and Daniel Nardiello for Brian Jensen, Chris Hussey, Ashley Grimes and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, who all drop down to the bench.
It is a big night for 19-year-old Charles-Cook, who makes his first start in league football after replacing Jensen at half time at the weekend.
If that switch raised eyebrows then the decision to start with the youngster in such an important relegation battle is sure to crank up the tension on the terraces tonight.
Flitcroft said on Saturday that it was the right decision, for tactical reasons, after losing patience with Jensen's distribution from the back.
Fans will be much more comfortable with the Bury boss's other changes, however, with both Jones and Nardiello returning from injury much quicker than expected.
Jones has missed the last three matches since limping off at Cheltenham on March 1 with a hamstring strain, while the club's leading scorer, Nardiello, missed the trip to Southend with a muscle strain - possibly just rested as a precaution ahead of tonight's relegation six-pointer.
Platt, meanwhile, returns to the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute at the weekend.
TORQUAY: Rice; Tonge, Downes, Pearce, Nicholson; Goodwin, Lathrope, Cameron; Showunmi, Benyon.
Subs: Poke, Harding, Hawley, Yeoman, Stockley, Stevens, O'Connor.
BURY: Charles-Cook; Veseli, Mills, McNulty; Jones, Sedgwick, Tutte, Soares; Mayor; Nardiello, Platt.
Subs: Hinds, Grimes, Hussey, Young, Akpa-Akpro, Jensen, Carroll.
We're in position here at Plainmoor where Bury will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to four matches against League Two's bottom club Torquay United.
Just waiting for team news, but the conditions look to be a far sight better than when the initial fixture was called off due to a waterlogged pitch in February.
The only Bury players out on the pitch here are goalkeepers Brian Jensen and Reice Charles-Cook.
With the way Reice is limbering up it looks like the 19-year-old could be in line for his first league start after replacing Jensen at half time at Southend on Saturday.
