Chesterfield 1-0 Torquay

Barry Conlon made an immediate impact on debut after sealing a loan move from Grimsby with the winner as Chesterfield kept their promotion push on track.Torquay's Scott Rendell headed against the post early on, while Jake Thompson saw his shot ruled out for offside.

Conlon then grabbed the only goal of the game, sweeping Dominic Green's low cross into the net from 15 yards out.

Chris Zebroski forced a fine save and Nicky Wroe a goalline clearance as Chesterfield held off a late rally.

Torquay manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:

"I was very pleased with the players today. I'm disappointed to lose, but it was sort of a freak goal really that cannoned off Wayne (Carlisle) and put them straight in.

"We know goals change games, it's an old clich?ut it's true and if we'd have got a goal I think that we'd have definitely taken a point out of the game.

"The progression we've made as a club and as squad we expect to get something, it doesn't always happen that way but we've never lacked belief."
