Torquay United 2-1 Bury

An injury-time winner from Ashley Yeoman aided troubled Torquay's survival bid as they edged past Bury.

The Gulls struck first when captain Lee Mansell headed in a Dale Tonge cross early on, but the chances of League football next season looked dimmer as Clive Platt converted a left foot shot.

But sub Yeoman, returning after a loan spell at Dorchester, had the last word.

Coming on with 15 minutes to play, he pounced on a loose ball and scored from eight yards in injury time.

Torquay remain bottom of the table, five points from safety, but are catching up with second-bottom Northampton, who lost 3-0 against Rochdale.

Post-match: Bury manager Flitcroft

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It's really disappointing for us as a team and a club, but certainly for the fans that have made the difficult trip down. I'm gutted for them.

"We've set good standards since I've been at the football club and we fell short of those standards."
