Torquay 2-0 Histon

Torquay took control of their Blue Square Premier play-off semi-final tie as goals from Nicky Wroe and Tim Sills helped beat Histon in the first leg.

Last season's beaten FA Trophy finalists took the lead when Wayne Carlisle set up Wroe, who drilled home from 12 yards.

Sills headed past keeper Joe Welch from Lee Mansell's cross 16 minutes from full-time to double the advantage.

Histon pressed for a reply with Jamie Barker and Midson both going close.

Midson had earlier squandered the visitors' best chance at the start of the second-half as Gulls defender Chris Todd did well to block his shot.

The return leg is at Histon on Monday with the winners to meet either Cambridge or Stevenage in the final.

Torquay: Poke, Mansell, Todd, Robertson, Nicholson, Carlisle, Wroe, Hargreaves, Stevens, Sills, Sturrock (Christie 88). Subs Not Used: Rice, Hodges, Green, Carayol.

Scorers: Wroe (36), Sills (74)

Histon: Welch, Pope (Andrews 52), Oyebanjo, Ada, Gwillim, Knight-Percival, Barker, Langston, Mitchell-King, Murray, Midson. Subs Not Used: Key, Bygrave, Roache, Simpson.
