Eastleigh 3-2 Torquay United

Yemi Odubade
Yemi Odubade's only other goal for Eastleigh came in last season's play-offs

Eastleigh beat Torquay United for the first time in their history to go second in the National League table.

Yemi Odubade scored his first goal of the season when he stabbed home Dan Harding's cross in the early moments.

Lee Cook doubled the advantage, reacting quickest in the Torquay area after his first shot was blocked, before Josh Payne scored a free-kick.

Torquay almost rescued a point as Angus MacDonald hit the post before James Hurst and Alex Fisher got late goals.
