Torquay   2 - 1   Shrewsbury

Torquay 2-1 Shrewsbury

Torquay 2-1 Shrewsbury

Two second-half goals eased Torquay's relegation fears as they beat fading play-off hopefuls Shrewsbury Town.

Town went ahead when Dean Holden's far-post shot from Jake Simpson's corner deflected in off keeper Scott Bevan.

But Mark Ellis levelled for the Gulls before Scott Rendell hit the 61st-minute winner, both goals coming from corners by left-back Kevin Nicholson.

Bevan superbly denied Town's Dave Hibbert, while Town keeper David Button kept out Nicky Wroe's fierce free-kick.

Torquay are now nine points clear of safety, while faltering Shrewsbury have slipped to 12th after their fifth defeat on the trot - six points adrift of the play-off pack with just seven games left.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"I've got a big smile because the performance was great, it had everything.

"We had the disappointment of going behind but the players showed great character, not only to come back level and then get in front, but then step on and go for the third.

"That's the style I want us to play in, as I don't care where we are in the league, we have no fear and we go to win every game."
