Ebbsfleet United 2-4 Torquay United

Jamie Reid netted his 10th goal of the season as Torquay moved into the National League play-off positions following a 4-2 victory at bottom club Ebbsfleet.

Jake Andrews, Matt Buse and Liam Davis were also on target to take the Gulls up to sixth and leave Fleet six points from safety.

After Andrews converted at the back post in the eighth minute, Reid turned his marker and fired in to double the visitors' advantage in the 24th minute.

Josh Umerah scored from close range to half the deficit, but Buse and Davis netted from close range in the space of seven minutes after half-time to kill the game.

Ebbsfleet grabbed a second goal 10 minutes from time, Umerah heading in Myles Weston's cross, but it was not enough.
