Gulls soar into top four

22 March 2011 11:00
Torquay maintained their promotion push by beating Cheltenham 2-1 -their third win in four unbeaten League Two matches to soar to fourth in the table. The hosts took the lead when Chris Zebroski played a superb cross-field pass out to the left wing to Jake Robinson, whose shot was diverted out for a corner. Craig Stanley's 28th-minute corner from the left was met with a downward header by central defender Guy Branston, for his second goal in successive games. In the 71st minute on-loan Ipswich teenager Ronan Murray finally claimed his first Gulls goal with a clinical six-yard finish. Cheltenham defender Danny Andrew gave the Robins a late lifeline with a thumping 89th-minute free-kick that Bevan found too hot to hold.
