On the bench was Jordan Stevens, Jake Hyde, Josh Owers, Will Dawes and Zac Bell.

Yeovil continued to create chances with Sonny Cox heading the ball onto the roof of the net after 19 minutes but the goal they deserved came on 23 minutes. Rhys Murphy was able to play in Frank Nouble who did well in the penalty area to shoot and he beat Rhys Lovett in the Torquay goal for 1-0.
Torquay made their first substitution straight after the goal as Callum Dolan was replaced by Ryan Hanson.
Yeovil kept the pressure on Torquay and were were pushing for a second goal. They were awarded a free kick on the edge of the area on 31 minutes Rhys Murphy's shot was just high and wide.
The second goal came on 34 minutes when Sonny Blu Lo-Everton found space just outside the box and unleashed a superb strike into the bottom corner.
The only decent chance for Torquay during the first half came just after Yeovil's second goal when Brad Ash got the better of Morgan Williams but he wasn't able to take advantage of the opportunity.
Two minutes of time was added on and Yeovil had a comfortable lead at half time.

Torquay made their second substitution on 60 minutes when Ross Marshall was replaced by Asa Hall.
One minute later the home side grabbed a goal back when Brett McGavin unleashed a thunderous low strike at goal that beat Joe Day. In all fairness, it was a superb finish.

Torquay made their final substitution on 74 minutes as Brad Ash was replaced by Dillon De Silva.
Yeovil replaced Jordan Young with Will Dawes on 79 minutes and the final 10 minutes were very comfortable for Yeovil. They were able to keep Torquay at arms length and Torquay just weren't going to be able to get back into the game.
Five minutes of time was added on and Yeovil returned to Somerset with three points.
Full Time: Torquay United 1-3 Yeovil Town
With each win that has gone by we are seeing time and time again that Yeovil really can beat anybody in this league. At the start of the season Torquay were the side that we anticipated being our main challengers but we made them look bang average yesterday. There is still a long way to go in the season, with plenty of big games but if we keep this squad fit and firing on all cylinders it will take something special for anybody to catch us.
Our next fixture is on Saturday when Dover Athletic visit Huish Park. Kick off is at 3PM.
