Torquay United 0-1 Macclesfield Town
Torquay are still searching for a first victory of the National League season after going down to a home defeat against Macclesfield.
Chances were limited for both sides in the early stages with Jennison Myrie-Williams driving high and wide from Torquay's best opportunity and the Gulls also had strong shouts for a penalty waved away when Rhys Murphy went down in a challenge with Macclesfield goalkeeper Shwan Jalal.
And on the stroke of half-time Ryan Lloyd forced Torquay goalkeeper Vincent Dorel to tip over his crossbar.
The visitors went ahead four minutes into the second half when Scott Wilson capitalised on an error by Myles Anderson to round Dorel and roll the ball into the net.
Josh Gowling then wasted a great opportunity to level for the hosts when he headed wide from Luke Young's free-kick.
