Aldershot Town 2-0 Torquay United

Goals from Tristan Plummer and Glenn Wilson secured a win for Aldershot Town over Torquay United.

Aldershot, who won at promotion-chasing Forest Green on Friday, took the lead in the fifth minute when Plummer's long-range shot sailed into the net.

Torquay missed a golden chance to equalise before the break when Krystian Pearce shot over from six yards.

Wilson then slotted in from a Jordan Roberts delivery with 16 minutes left to put the game beyond reach.

Aldershot Town caretaker boss Chris Barker told BBC Surrey:

Barker on Aldershot v Torquay

"After three months of doing this job, we wanted to be safe in the league.

"I look at the boys in the dressing room and there's some League experience and at times I think we should be doing better as a club.

"We needed the second goal and I am very happy with the clean sheet along with the three points.

"I think that's the first time at home in four months that we've had a clean sheet, which isn't good enough. But right now I am very happy and I've now spoken to the boys to finish the season strongly."
