Torquay   0 - 0   Notts County

Torquay 0-0 Notts County

Torquay 0-0 Notts County

Torquay underlined their impressive late-season form in a comfortable draw with League Two champions Notts County.

Steve Collis made a superb diving save to deny County's Delroy Facey as the home side made it a club record 691 minutes without conceding a goal.

County keeper Kasper Schmeichel was also on top form, twice denying United's top-scorer Elliot Benyon and stopping a Kevin Nicholson drive.

Benyon beat the offside trap late on but Schmeichel kept him out yet again.


Notts County manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I have to give them full credit because they have come out at a tough place and kept a clean sheet.

"Overall, delighted with another point. We are the only team in the top three to get a point today.

"All in all, it's been a wonderful season."

Torquay United manger Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"It was a fabulous way to end the season, a full house at Plainmoor against the champions, and another clean sheet.

"The players take all the plaudits, I'm delighted for them and we really have gone out on a high this season.

"I actually thought that we shaded it today and we're probably a little bit unlucky not to win it."
