Kevin Nicholson eyes Torquay United improvement

Torquay boss Kevin Nicholson says his side can still improve, despite going on their best run so far this season.

The Gulls' 2-2 draw at home to Grimsby means they have taken five points from the last three games.

"We're not going to be happy with ourselves until we've consistently won games playing consistently in the way I want us to play," said Nicholson.

"There were glimpses of it, and there have been in all four or five games that I've had so far."

The Gulls are still in the bottom four of the National League but have found a new confidence under Nicholson, who took over as player-manager last month.

"We've been hammering home a few points about the lines we need to keep and how we need to defend, and I'll keep hammering them home because I think the lads are starting to see now that if we do it we're not a bad team," he added to BBC Radio Devon.

"Yes, it's a nice little unbeaten run, but our concentration turns to the cup next week and then after that it's a chance to try to kick on and try to get out of this bottom four.

"I said to the lads that the season starts from when I came into the door, and a lot of them have got on board and done what I've asked.

"I'm relatively happy, but I think we could have beaten Woking and could have beaten Grimsby, so I'm not going to be out on the town thinking how great I've done, we've still got work to do."
