Morecambe   2 - 0   Torquay

Morecambe 2-0 Torquay

Morecambe 2-0 Torquay

Morecambe kept alive their League Two play-off hopes with a vital 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Torquay.

Paul Mullin turned in Mark Duff's corner from close range to put the Shrimps into an early lead.

Home keeper Barry Roche conceded a penalty when he pulled back Scott Rendell, but he made amends with a superb save to deny Nicky Wroe.

Rendell and Elliott Benyon went close for the Gulls, but Craig Stanley wrapped up the win in injury time.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"On paper a 2-0 defeat looks like we've been outplayed, but for anyone who was watching I felt like we dominated.

"We had numerous chances and I still think we were the better team and I'm proud of how the players performed.

"It was all us, but we just couldn't find the back of the net, which is very disappointing."
