The pressure is well and truly on at the top of the National League, after all Torquay United's promotion rivals picked up points as the Gulls drew 0-0 at Boreham Wood.
New leaders Sutton United (53pts) opened up a four-point gap with a 1-0 win at King's Lynn Town, who could field only three substitutes, including 50-year-old goalkeeping coach Paul Bastock.
Second-placed Hartlepool United (49), who travel to King's Lynn on Tuesday night, were held 0-0 at home by Eastleigh.
But Wrexham are up to fourth after a 2-0 home win over Weymouth and Notts County (6th) beat Wealdstone away 1-0.
The Gulls (48) are a point behind Hartlepool with two games in hand, and manager Gary Johnson felt that their result at Boreham Wood was a fair one.
"We missed a penalty early on, and they hit the post a couple of times," he said.
"Both teams didn't really create lots of opportunities, which is always disappointing, but at the end of the day we're going away with a point."
