Match ends, Torquay United 1, Eastleigh 2.
Torquay United 1-2 Eastleigh
Eastleigh goalkeeper Ross Flitney saved a late penalty as his side won at Torquay.
Flitney kept out Jamie Reid's 80th-minute spot-kick as the Spitfires extended their unbeaten National League run to six games.
The visitors took the lead after a ninth-minute goal from Sam Matthews, who drove straight through the heart of the Gulls' defence and fired into the far corner.
Bottom-of-the-table Torquay had their chances, with Jake Gosling coming close a number of times, and just after the half-hour mark they levelled as Luke Young found the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
Eastleigh responded well and made it 2-1 in the 69th-minute as Gavin Hoyte slotted into the bottom corner.
Torquay had a glorious chance to equalise when Reid was brought down by George Dowling, but his penalty was kept out by Flitney.
