Yeovil boss Russell Slade was gracious in defeat after their 4-1 loss against Torquay in the FA Cup first round.
"Torquay deserve to go through but I am sure they would rather swap that win for promotion," said Slade.
"People say it's non-league against League One, but this is a much better Torquay team than that gap indicates.
"They are a much better team than the one which got relegated last year. I am sure that if they can continue to play like that they will achieve their aim."
