Torquay United 1-1 Macclesfield Town

Sean McGinty's goal helped Torquay salvaged a draw with Macclesfield at Plainmoor to stay clear of the relegation zone.

Scott Flinders' scuffed clearance sent Luke Young bearing down on goal, but the Macclesfield goalkeeper recovered in time to spare his own blushes.

Kingsley James put the visitors in front in the 35th minute, converting Danny Whitaker's corner to notch his fourth goal of the season.

But McGinty did likewise for the hosts five minutes after the break to level.

The draw keeps Torquay remain four points clear of the drop zone, while Macclesfield stay in ninth place.
