Crewe   3 - 3   Torquay

Crewe v Torquay graphic

Crewe 3-3 Torquay

Ashley Westwood's second-half brace rescued a point for Crewe and stretched Torquay's winless run to nine games.

Mark Ellis gave the visitors a two-goal advantage, heading home two fine Kevin Nicholson set-pieces.

Crewe's Lee Bell blasted a penalty over after Guy Branston handled but Clayton Donaldson slotted in to make it 2-1.

Eunan O'Kane fired in Torquay's third but Westwood's volley and cool penalty, after Branston felled Ajay Leitch-Smith, earned a draw.

Torquay almost stole the points at the death when Ellis' header was cleared off the line by Danny Blanchett.

Crewe have now scored and conceded eight goals in two weeks after last week's 5-5 draw with Chesterfield.

The result sees Torquay drop to eighth and out of the League Two play-off places.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:
"What a game that was, we're disappointed that we haven't won after leading by two separate goals on two separate occasions.

"But credit to our boys in the second half, we came out and took the game to Crewe again and got the two goals up again with a brilliant bit of play.

"In the end there were chances either end to win it and we certainly weren't holding back."
