Grimsby Town 2-2 Torquay United

Padraig Amond
Padraig Amond has now scored four goals in five games for Grimsby Town

Grimsby came back from two goals down to earn a point against Torquay.

The Gulls seized the initiative when Joe Quigley headed in from James Hurst's deep cross.

They doubled their lead when Exodus Geohaghon crossed from the left and Matt Robinson nodded into his own goal.

However, Robinson made amends with a 30-yard strike that beat Fabian Spiess before Padraig Amond headed in Danny East's cross to complete the comeback as Torquay flagged late on.

Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst talking told BBC Radio Humberside:

"From my point of view it was literally a game of two halves and I'm sure Paul Cox will be saying the same thing. You have to look at it from your own point of view but give credit to Torquay.

"We know what the threat is, we spoke about the threat but it's difficult to stop it.

"I have to give the players credit for some character and playing our game in the second half rather than been sucked in to playing more a game that Torquay are accustomed too."
