Rendell: Scored third goal

Torquay put a huge dent in Bury's play-off hopes thanks to a convincing 3-0 win at Gigg Lane.

The Gulls went in front eight minutes before half-time when full-back Chris Robertson crossed for Mustapha Carayol and, at the second attempt, the youngster rifled home on the turn from 12 yards.

After the restart, Lee Mansell came close to doubling Torquay's lead before Bury nearly hit back with skipper Stephen Dawson heading over the crossbar from just eight yards.

With Bury pushing desperately for an equaliser, Torquay completed a fine victory with two late breakaway goals.

With three minutes left on the clock, substitute Danny Stevens latched onto Nicky Wroe's pass before firing home low into the corner from 15 yards.

Then, in stoppage-time, striker Scott Rendell also fired into the corner after being neatly teed up by Stevens.
