Gary Owers: Torquay United boss wants 'upward trend' after Leyton Orient win
Torquay boss Gary Owers hopes United's first back-to-back wins of the season can start an upturn in results.
"Hopefully this is the start of an upward trend," Owers said.
"Back-to-back victories, with another home game coming up, we should be full of confidence and optimism," he told BBC Radio Devon.
Torquay gave a debut to former Marseille and France Under-21 striker Guy Gnabouyou as a substitute as they won for the first time on a Saturday this season.
"It wasn't perfect, we could have done better in the first half and if I'm honest one or two really good chances went begging," added Owers.
"So there's always room for improvement, and that's apparent still if you look at the league table and I've warned the players about that."
