Gulls head coach Gary Owers insisted that Torquay United deserved more after an improved performance in a 2-1 defeat against Eastleigh at Plainmoor.

“I haven’t been too critical of the players, because I thought they had a good go and deserved something out of the game – whether it’s three points, I’m not sure, but definitely a point,” he said.

“We have been punished by giving away two very soft goals again, and it’s killed us. We moved the ball quickly and dominated possession and, to be fair, the lads stuck to the task and got back in the game after falling behind early on.

“At half-time I said ‘Well done’, and I felt we had enough to go on and win the game. After conceding a second goal from a throw-in, we’ve got a penalty, and we can’t take a gilt-edged chance like that.

“I am not blaming Reidy (Jamie Reid) – he scored one at Eastleigh – but he went the same way and the keeper read it.”
