Morecambe's Laurence Wilson was delighted to put a poor performance behind him with a brace of penalties against Torquay.
Billy Kee's 78th-minute strike put the Gulls on course for all three points but defender Wilson kept his cool to fire home two late penalties to seal a 2-1 victory and give Morecambe their third straight win.
Wilson said: "I had a terrible game so I was glad to put the penalties away.
"It didn't look like we were going to score and then they scored late on and we needed a lifeline. It's a massive win."
