Win-less Torquay United stay rooted at the National League basement following a 1-0 defeat by Macclesfield Town in Gary Owers’ first home game in charge.

Owers' Gulls face a tough test at seventh placed Dagenham & Redbridge next Saturday.

United's task is made trickier as the Daggers slipped a place despite drawing 2-2 at Solihull Moors last Saturday.

Yellows fans will be hoping 13 will be a lucky number for United following 12 league games without a victory.

Truro City start the day at the National League South summit following seven wins in a row.

Six of those wins have been in the league and have hoisted Lee Hodges’ White Tigers to top spot following Saturday’s 2-1 top of the table win which ended East Thurrock United’s unbeaten start.

Noah Keats took his goal tally to seven with the 22nd minute opener and although Lewis Smith levelled after the hour, City again scored a late winner thanks to Connor Riley-Lowe’s 89th minute spot kick conversion.

East Thurrock host third placed St Albans City tonight with both sides needing a win to challenge Truro for top spot.

Managerless Bath City edged up to eighth following a goalless draw with Wealdstone while third from bottom Poole Town drew 0-0 with promotion chasing Chelmsford City.

Scott Twine and Dave Pratt both scored twice as Mark Collier’s Chippenham Town soared to 12th following an eye-catching 5-1 home win over Hemel Hempstead. Matt Smith added a fifth. Pratt is now on seven goals for the season.

Marc McGregor’s Weston-super-Mare upset the form book and climbed to 16th with a superb 3-0 home win over high-flying Dartford thanks to goals for Gethyn Hill (18, 21) and Archie Collins (47).

Two-goal Ed Williams scored a last minute leveller as Gloucester City clawed back from 2-0 down in the 70th minute to draw 2-2 at Bognor Regis.
