The Third Division outfit travel to the Lane tonight for a second round tie with only Darren Anderton rested from the side that beat Southampton on Sunday.
With a place in Europe still the big prize for winning the competition, Glenn is determined not to be caught out early on.
“The Worthington Cup is very high on our agenda,” he explained. “Any route into Europe, this is where Spurs want to be, we’ve been there in the past and we want to be again.
“If we can do it via league placings that would be great but realistically this is one of the trophies we are capable of winning and we’ve got to hope to have a good run in it - if not go all the way.
“It’s Torquay’s opportunity to take that opportunity for us away, if they knock us out. So we can’t afford to be complacent.
“Everyone outside this club will expect us win easily and we have make sure we go out, put our professional head on and get the result everyone’s expecting.
“If we don’t, there will be a massive story. If we get the victory, it will be a very small story. So come Friday I won’t mind if there is a small story about us in the newspapers.”
Spurs are 9/1 to win 5-0 and 12/1 to triumph 6-0 - click for details.
