Torquay United 0-1 Woking

Ismail Yakubu headed a stoppage time winner as Woking beat Torquay to record a third straight National League win.

Louis Briscoe and Courtney Richards went closest for the Gulls in a first half of few clear-cut chances.

The Cards' Keiran Murtagh twice forced Fabian Spiess into action shortly after the restart, while Torquay's Alex Fisher was denied by Dan Butler.

Spiess made another fine save from Joey Jones, but was powerless to stop Yakubu nodding in Bruno Andrade's corner.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"I was a little bit frustrated, I felt that our passing was not up to the standard with which we needed to be and all credit to Torquay - they pressed and worked us very hard.

"I got into them at half-time and certainly in the second half we ran the game for long periods.

"We are very strong defensively at the moment with three clean sheets out of four, and I think that's a major factor for us going forward."
