Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: FC Hal­i­fax Town had a man sent off as they lost 1-0 to a Torquay United side bat­tling against the drop.

Hal­i­fax striker Ben Tom­lin­son was sent off for a 74th-minute sec­ond cau­tion­able late chal­lenge on Luke Young with the Shay­men al­ready be­hind.

Sam John­son made an early save from Rhys Healey and on­loan Cardiff striker Healey and Scott McManus went close as the Gulls made a bright start.

John­son also saved from Young’s free-kick in the 56th minute, but Torquay struck 60 sec­onds later. Young clipped the ball to the far post and Jamie Reid’s header was pushed over the line by John­son.

Healey was close to a sec­ond as Torquay closed to within five points of safety and with a game in hand on fifth-bot­tom Wok­ing.
