Ashley Yeoman
Ashley Yoman made his Torquay debut as a 16-year-old in 2008

Torquay United won back-to-back league games for the first time since last September with a win over Lincoln City.

Ashley Yeoman's goal late in the second-half decided a dull encounter at Plainmoor.

The striker latched on to a long ball from Aaron Downes and slotted past Paul Farman in the Lincoln goal.

Louis Briscoe and John Campbell had decent first-half chances for Torquay while Ben Tomlinson went close for Lincoln in the second-half.

The result sees Torquay move up four places to 12th in the Conference, one place above the Imps on goal difference.
