Torquay United 0-0 FC Halifax Town

Torquay moved to within a point of safety after a goalless draw with fellow National League strugglers Halifax.

Andre Wright had two chances for the Gulls - first being denied by Town goalkeeper Sam Johnson and then heading Dan Butler's cross wide of the post.

Torquay goalkeeper Brendan Moore was called into action at the other end when he had to deny Richard Peniket.

There were few second-half chances as the hosts closed on Boreham Wood and Town moved two points away from danger.
