Torquay United manager Chris Hargreaves says it is "incredible" that striker Duane Ofori-Acheampong is suspended.

The 21-year-old received his fifth booking on Tuesday and misses Saturday's game with Wrexham.

"I'm so disappointed for him that he's suspended, but I've looked through all five incidents and in another season he'd be on no bookings.

"It's incredible, but it is what it is and he's got to be ready for his return," Hargreaves told BBC Sport.

The former Southend youngster has scored three goals in 13 games for the Gulls since

And Ofori-Acheampong, who had never made a first-team appearance at professional level before joining Torquay, has impressed Hargreaves.

"I'm delighted with him, I can't fault his character on and off the pitch, he's a tremendous lad," he added.

"He scored a fantastic goal against Forest Green on Tuesday, he showed great composure and it was a brilliant finish."
