Torquay 0-0 Port Vale

Torquay extended their unbeaten run to eight games with a goalless draw with Port Vale.

Chris Zebroski shrugged off three markers and sent a thumping shot wide in the first half.

Gulls skipper Lee Mansell made a superb block to deny Robert Taylor's long-range effort while Jake Robertson was thwarted at the other end.

Zebroski rattled the post with an angled drive while Sean Rigg's dipping effort cracked the crossbar for Vale.

POST-MATCH REACTION

Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"We certaintly warranted goals, but we played a good side in Port Vale.

"We took the game to them but couldn't get that finishing touch.

"We thought the disallowed goal was a perfectly good goal, we're disappointed it was disallowed."
