Grimsby Town 0-2 Torquay United

Torquay claimed their fourth consecutive league win as they inflicted Grimsby's first home defeat of the season.

The Gulls took the lead when Courtney Richards fired in from close range.

Midfielder Luke Young doubled the away side's advantage when he ran through the defence and drilled in a low shot.

Grimsby battled but were forced to finish the game with 10 men when Lenell John-Lewis went off injured after all three substitutes had been used.
