Torquay United manager Chris Hargreaves has backed his side to turn their form around, despite a dismal run of six defeats in their last seven games.

The Gulls went down 2-1 at Kidderminster on Saturday and have dropped from second to 12th in the Conference in just over a month.

They had previously been on a run of six wins in a row.

"The last 20 minutes has given me belief that my team are returning," Hargreaves told BBC Radio Devon.

"The last 20 minutes is where we were for 90 minutes when we went on the run, the last 20 minutes is what I want from a team."

Kidderminster dominated most of the game, but Torquay pulled a goal back from Aaron Downes and had a number of other chances to salvage a point towards the end of a game.

Hargreaves has brought in former Plymouth Argyle defender Durrell Berry on non-contract terms and said chairman Thea Bristow is doing all she can to find the funds to bolster the side.

"Thea and the board are magnificent, they are trying so hard and I appreciate that support," he added.

"We're amazed to get Durrell Berry. We couldn't get him through in time to do any set-up play for Friday, but he's another great addition."
