Torquay extended their winning streak to six games with an easy win over Dover.

Aaron Downes' glancing header from Luke Young's corner gave the dominant Gulls a first-half lead.

Ricky Miller should have equalised for Dover with 11 minutes left, but put his shot over the bar after rounding the goalkeeper.

Torquay doubled their lead as Connor Essam put Courtney Cameron's cross past debutant goalkeeper Andy Rafferty.

Torquay have now gone 556 minutes without conceding a goal, keeping five successive clean sheets.
