FC Halifax Town 0-2 Torquay United

Two quick-fire second-half goals earned Torquay victory at Halifax.

Gulls goalkeeper Dan Lavercombe pulled off a stunning stop to keep out James Bolton's header early on.

Ashley Yeoman saw his low effort saved by Matt Glennon before the visitors broke the deadlock when Toby Ajala's header played in John Campbell, who scuffed the ball home.

They doubled their advantage minutes later when Kadell Daniel curled a 30-yard free-kick into the top corner.

Victory saw Torquay remain in 12th place in the Conference table with a single game remaining.

Halifax sit in ninth, with the play-off places out of their reach.
