A stoppage-time goal from Asa Hall earned Torquay a 2-1 National League win over Chesterfield.

The Gulls led inside 10 minutes when Ben Whitfield crossed and a defensive mix-up allowed Louis Britton to finish from close range.

Whitfield twice threatened a second but Chesterfield levelled just before half-time when Tom Denton tucked home after Lucas Covolan had saved from a free-kick.

Whitfield saw an effort deflected wide and Britton twice went close with headers, while Chesterfield’s Luke Rawson sent a long-range effort just wide with Covolan out of position.

But with the clock showing 94 minutes, Hall headed in Jake Andrews’ corner to snatch all three points for the hosts.
