Torquay's Stunning Win

Torquay United staged a stunning comeback last night to beat Aldershot 4-3 at Plainmoor. Craig Reed scored a hat-trick for the visitors to put them 3-0 up. Then goals from Billy Bodin, Ran Jarvis and Ashley Yeoman pulled the Gulls level. And the drama wasn't over - with Rene Howe scoring an 89th minute winner.

Manager Martin Ling described it as 'the greatest comeback of my career'.

“It is the first time that has ever happened in my managerial career. To be 3-0 down and win 4-3 is very pleasing, and shows great character from the dressing room. We’ve not had a lot of wins this year and they came up with some big answers.

“Defensively, you can always pick holes in a 4-3 win but everyone went home happy last night and the character in Torquay’s dressing room is pretty special.”
