Gateshead 1-2 Torquay United

National League strugglers Torquay moved out of the relegation zone after coming from behind to beat Gateshead.

Jon Shaw put the Heed ahead with a sweet strike from an acute angle.

But Iffy Allen drew the visitors level with a neat finish from Nathan Blissett's cross before Andre Wright struck the winner.

The win moved the Gulls out of the drop zone, one point clear of Altrincham and Halifax, while Gateshead are ninth, six points off the play-off spots.
