"This time last year after 15 games we had 15 points and we were in 19th place and went on a good run," Ling said.

"At the moment we're 15 games and 24 points so we're a lot better off."

Ling was also quick to remind people that he lost a number of key players in the summer, such as Bobby Olejnik, Eunan O'Kane and Mark Ellis.

"I'm still not fully satisfied," he told BBC Radio Devon.

"But what I am satisfied with is that we made really good money in the summer, replaced them by spending nothing other than a bit on Billy Bodin, and are still in and around where we were last year.

"At a club like Torquay, if you can make money and keep the club competitive it's a good act to have and we need to do that regularly."
