Crystal Palace   2 - 1   Torquay

Darren Ambrose scores Palace's opener
Amrbose joined Palace from neighbours Charlton last month

Two second-half goals from Darren Ambrose spared Crystal Palace's blushes against League Two side Torquay in the first round of the Carling Cup.

After a goalless first half, summer signing Ambrose put the hosts in front on 65 minutes with a six-yard header.

But Torquay equalised nine minutes later through a Tim Sills header.

Ambrose sealed the victory from the penalty spot 12 minutes from time when Alassane N'Diaye was brought down by Chris Todd inside the box.
