Torquay United make the long trip to Chester FC buoyed by a positive FA Cup performance which had player-boss Kevin Nicholson purring.

The Gulls won 2-0 at Chesham on Tuesday to seal their place in the second round.

Two goals from on-loan West Bromwich Albion youngster Andre Wright sealed the win, just days after the sides fought out a 0-0 stalemate.

Nicholson hopes the display can act as a springboard for his struggling side, who are 22nd in the National League and seven points adrift of safety heading into Saturday's trip to the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium (3pm).

Asked if the Chesham result can be a platform to build on, Nicholson said: "It needs to be. The players need to have a little more belief and we should have scored more goals. We are looking solid and that is one goal conceded in four games now, they they need to kick on. If we do, and a little belief comes back, then it is funny how things in football can change.

"It was a very professional performance and I'm happy with the lads. We were solid and worked hard."

Alex Fisher, who returned to the side on Tuesday and worked well in attack with Wright, added: "I am happy to be involved again. I'm a little sore but there's such a togetherness and spirit among the lads and I can't wait for Saturday's game to come around. We will go to Chester with confidence and hopefully we'll be able to add some points to our tally."
