Match report Bristol Torquay
Pitches were back in action at Bristol and although a little soft, the game started with intensity and a stalemate in a crowded midfield.
Torquay brought their head of academy along, who keen to share his vast experience and knowledge, quickly established himself as the 10th man, urging his team on.
Torquay took a 0-1 lead just after half-time via a low cut back cross from their deeper use of width.
Bristol equalled Torquay's final third penetration with both defensive lines holding resolutely standfast and while chances, came close, ultimately they were not being converted. The goalkeepers had a big say in that with positive positioning and good distribution.
With Bristol pushing for an equaliser, Torquay capitalised on an overload break to cross from the right and head home unmarked.
Bristol pushed on while Torquay shored up and took the road to the next round.
Best wishes for the next round.
