Grimsby   0 - 3   Torquay

Grimsby 0-3 Torquay

Grimsby 0-3 Torquay

Grimsby are grimly hanging on to their league status after they were beaten by 10-man Torquay at Blundell Park.

Nicky Wroe opened the scoring from the spot after Olly Lancashire had tugged down Elliot Benyon in the box.

Benyon got the second himself when he rifled home at the near post after good work from winger Mustapha Carayol.

Guy Branston received a second yellow after a foul on Akpa Akpro but United remained composed and added another when Carayol slotted in the third.


Torquay boss Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"Fantastic performance by the players, it was a great result and we were keen to continue where we had left off.

"The pitch didn't allow us to be at our fluent best at times, so we decided to push Scott Rendell up and go direct and it paid off with the players adapting well.

"It takes some doing to stay in this league. We've done some great things at Torquay over three seasons, but I think this surpasses it."
