Fleetwood continued their League Two promotion push with victory at bottom club Torquay.

The first half was devoid of chances but Gulls left-back Kevin Nicholson finally forced a save from Chris Maxwell after the break.

Home shot-stopper Martin Rice also made fine saves to deny Jamille Matt and Antoni Sarcevic.

But Matt won it when he latched on to Jon Parkin's inch-perfect, defence-splitting pass and slotted home.
