Ling's side have dropped to 10th in League Two after their draw with Rotherham

Torquay United manager Martin Ling says he would like his side to take the lead in a match.

The Gulls have only led once in their last five matches and were 2-0 down in the opening 10 minutes before fighting back to draw 3-3 with Rotherham.

"From being two goals behind twice, for us to get a point, I suppose I should be satisfied," he told BBC Radio Devon.

"But it would be nice for us to get our noses in front and see what we're like when we're on the front foot."

Ling added: "We've gone two behind twice, showed resilience and in the end I think we probably edged the game."

But the former Leyton Orient and Cambridge United boss was critical of the goals that his side conceded.

"They've scored three goals that, for me, have been given to them too easy, whereas we've had to earn every single one of ours."
