Robbie Threlfall's late strike for Morecambe denied struggling, managerless Torquay a vital win.

The Gulls took the lead when Aaron Downes met Damon Lathrope's corner to head home.

Torquay should have increased their advantage but both Elliot Benyon and Karl Hawley hit the woodwork.

And visiting left-back Threlfall made the hosts pay late on when his superb long-range strike found the top corner to earn Morecambe a point.
