Torquay   0 - 2   Grimsby

Torquay United v Grimsby Town

Torquay United 0-2 Grimsby Town

Torquay's drop towards the bottom of the table continued as an own goal from Kevin Nicholson helped Grimsby inflict the Gulls' fifth successive defeat.

In a turgid first half, debutant Mark Ellis came close with a header before the visitors' Peter Sweeney had Michael Poke scrambling to make a save.

Nicholson found his own net with a sliced clearance under pressure from Peter Bore early in the second half.

Sweeney's fine free-kick then beat Poke to wrap up the points.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"We wanted to put that run against us right today, it didn't happen, but I don't think it was because of a lack of effort.

"I can't legislate what happened five minutes into the second-half with the own goal, it was a total freak and we didn't see that coming.

"We won't feel sorry for ourselves, we've got to dig in now and we've got to keep going."
