Eastleigh 1-2 Torquay United

Torquay secured their first league win away from home since 11 November thanks to Louis Briscoe's goal at Eastleigh.

Veteran striker Deon Burton opened the scoring for the hosts when he turned in midfielder Joe Partington's knock-down.

Luke Young provided the assist for Olivier Gueguen to find the net from six yards and level the scores for Torquay before the break.

The Gulls secured victory when Briscoe beat goalkeeper Ross Flitney from close range with a neat, low finish.
