Barnet joint-head coach Mark Robson was pleased with the way his side kept Torquay at arm's length in their 1-0 home win.
Clovis Kamdjo's late strike lifted the Bees off the foot of the League Two table, much to the delight of Robson.
"It was a little bit nervy," he said. "We had a great chance right at the death and it would have made it a little bit easier for me, but we're delighted with a win.
"It was a bit nail-biting in the end but they're three well-earned points. They had a lot of shots from long range so to be fair we kept them at bay. We knew they were a good team and that they would cause us problems.
"We perhaps gave the ball away too easily in the first half and we gave ourselves problems, we tried to do something about that in the second half.
"That's three wins out of four, and a draw in that as well, so that's very, very good and a clean sheet is a massive bonus for us. If we keep getting clean sheets we'll keep winning."
