Torquay United saw off Chester with two second-half goals to extend their unbeaten league run to seven games.

Referee Karl Evans initially sent off Chester's Michael Kay in the first half for a second yellow, before retracting it as he had not actually been booked.

Just after the hour mark, Aaron Downes headed the visitors into a deserved lead from a Luke Young corner.

Then Ryan Bowman's right-footed drive made Torquay's third win in a row safe with 12 minutes remaining.
