Head coach Gary Owers says he understands the mood of Torquay United fans as the club stares down the barrel of National League relegation, but he promises that the future will be ‘100% better’.

The Gulls must beat FC Halifax Town at Plainmoor on Saturday, and rely on results elsewhere, just to keep their hopes alive.

But Owers said: “I am very respectful of the way the supporters feel about the situation we are in. I have had a bit of stick at times aimed at me, and I have to take that as part of the job.

“Some of it is constructive and fair, and some is abusive and unfair, but you have to take the rough with the smooth. Our fans have been brilliant, especially away from home, and at Plainmoor they always respond to what they see on the pitch.

“If the players are having a go, they always get behind them. Against Woking (2-1) only last week, they definitely helped to get the players over the line.

“All I can say is that, whatever happens (this season), it will definitely be 100% better next season.”
