Torquay   2 - 1   Crewe

Torquay 2-1 Crewe

Torquay 2-1 Crewe

Two first-half goals were enough for Torquay to end Crewe's five-match unbeaten run.

The hosts took an early lead when Eunan O'Kane finished Chris Zebroski's cross.

Zebroski headed in Kevin Nicholson's corner for the second, and United were denied a third by a trio of saves from visiting keeper Rhys Taylor.

Crewe got back in it through Danny Shelley's driven free-kick, but Clayton Donaldson missed the chance to equalise when one-on-one with Scott Bevan.


Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:
"That's probably the best football that I've seen at Plainmoor in the first 45 minutes, although again if we're going to take this a notch further we've got to put chances away.

"We had several chances to get the third goal and fourth goal, but we couldn't do it and 2-0 is a precarious scoreline to go in with.

"When you've got a smaller squad like we have, there's a real buzz around the dressing room and as long as the players keep giving me the quality they have, I don't see anyone coming in."

Crewe manager Dario Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke:
"We were 2-0 down and looked as though we might get a hiding.

"We'd all got to do better on the ball, I thought we did and in fact we created enough chances to get an equaliser.

"As they, it was a game of two halves. They took the first half, we took the second half."
