Eastbourne 4-2 Torquay

Two second-half goals from Matt Crabb helped struggling Eastbourne shock Conference promotion hopefuls Torquay.

Ashley Barnes's 20-yard shot gave the home side the perfect start but Torquay equalised in the 34th minute when Elliot Benyon drilled the ball home.

But Crabb first got onto the end of Paul Armstrong's cut back to score before heading in Ben Austin's cross.

He then turned provider for Dan Smith to score while Tim Sills' late header was little consolation for Torquay.
