Torquay's uncanny knack of winning games 1-0 is down to the club's strong work ethic, according to goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik.
The Austrian stopper has enjoyed a superb first season in English football with the Gulls, keeping 17 clean sheets as Torquay have risen to second place in League Two.
Of those shut-outs, 10 have come in victories by a single goal, and Olejnik points at that statistic as an indicator as to how resilient he and his team-mates have become.
"The clean sheets are proof of how hard we work together during games. If I keep a clean sheet that's nice' and we've won a lot of games this season 1-0 and that shows how hard we work all over the pitch," he said.
"If we were winning 3-1 or 3-2, you could say that there was a bit of luck in it. But winning so many games 1-0 shows the resilience we've got in defence and you can see people literally putting their bodies on the line for us during games.
"I've seen Mans (Lee Mansell) and Ian Morris blocking shots and that's not something I've seen from other players in their positions who I've played with before."
