Accrington extended their unbeaten run to seven games with victory over Torquay, who have won just one in nine.

Kal Naismith scored both of Stanley's goals, but it was the visitors who took the lead when Paul McCallum curled a shot into the top corner.

The equaliser came with Naismith's powerful header, and he then scored another header from a Nicky Hunt cross.

Chances were cleared off the line at either end during a high-tempo contest in which both sides chased a winner.
