The 22-year-old was set to feature in their Devon Bowl clash with Liverton United on Tuesday but manager Martin Ling withdrew him from the squad as he is in line to replace the suspended Oastler.
Captain Lee Mansell will serve the final game of his three-match ban which means Brian Saah, this week voted the Torquay fans' player of the month for November, will continue to wear the armband.
Torquay's back-to-back victories after a disappointing run moved them up into eighth place in npower League Two and a third successive win would see them leapfrog their hosts and move Ling's men into a play-off position.
