Lee Mansell's brace helped Torquay come from two goals down to earn a point with Bristol Rovers.
Matt Harold fired the visitors ahead from 25 yards, while Chris Zebroski caught out his former side to make it 2-0 after an incisive counter attack.
Mansell pulled one back at the second time of asking after Scott Bevan saved his follow-up to Rene Howe's effort.
And he earned his side a share of the spoils when he lifted Howe's pass over Bevan in the last minute.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Torquay manager Martin Ling told BBC Radio Devon:
"I think you've got to be relieved when you're 2-0 down, but I think we thoroughly deserved a point.
"At all times in the game, we were the aggressors.
"Again we've showed character in abundance to get out of a hole.
"We will use the playoffs as a safety net, rather than play for it."
