Altrincham 2-1 Torquay United

Damian Reeves inspired 10-man Altrincham to a third successive victory as they beat Torquay.

Reeves scored his 14th of the season on 37 minutes when he headed in Ryan Crowther's cross.

Altrincham doubled their advantage just past the hour-mark when Crowther pounced after Reeves' shot was parried.

Half-time substitute Louis Briscoe fired in from 20-yards for Torquay but the home side held on, despite the late dismissal of Sean Williams.
