TORQUAY team chief Leroy Rosenior knows just what a detrimental affect dissenting fans can have on a home side.

That's why he made a bid to frustrate both Town's players and supporters a central part of his gameplan for Saturday's Galpharm Stadium showdown.

"We're more successful away than at home this season, and to be brutally honest, a lot of it's down to our supporters," said the former West Ham star, whose son Liam plays for Fulham in the Premiership.

"Last season (when Torquay pipped Town to the third and last automatic promotion berth onthe final day) we built a reputation for passing teams off the pitch.

"Our fans expect us to keep doing that, and while we want to entertain them, we're up against better, stronger and richer clubs in this division, and it's far, far harder.

"We've usually found it easier to play a counter-attacking style, which is what we did against Huddersfield.

"We know what Huddersfield are about - a good passing side with skilful players like Carss and Brandon who like to get it into the box from the flanks.

"It was a case of containing them by defending solidly - I was disappointed to concede from a set-piece in what was their only real chance of the first half - get the team and their fans frustrated, then hit on the break, which we did very well."
