Torquay United 2-2 Barrow

Paul Cox
Paul Cox won just three games in his time in charge at Torquay this season

Barrow's Andy Cook scored late on to ensure ex-Torquay boss Paul Cox's return to Plainmoor ended in a draw.

Barrow took a fortuitous early lead as Torquay goalkeeper Brendan Moore's clearance hit team-mate Exodus Geohaghon, allowing Ben Tomlinson to volley home from close range.

Courtney Richards levelled from 30 yards before Ben Gerring hit the bar with a header for Torquay.

Nathan Blissett put the Gulls in front before Cook's close-range leveller.
