Notts County surrended a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Torquay in an entertaining League Two clash at Meadow Lane.

Craig Westcarr and Ben Davies put the Magpies two goals to the good, but Mark Ellis pulled a goal back just before the break to give Torquay hope.

And Tim Sills' struck 13 minutes from time to ensure the Gulls recorded a fourth consecutive draw.

County came flying out of the traps and took the lead 11 minutes in when Westcarr lashed home a right-footed strike from the edge of the area after a Davies free-kick caused havoc in the Torquay area.

And a sublime free-kick from Davies put the home side two goals up 12 minutes before the break.

But Torquay responded and Ellis halved the deficit from close range, then Sills silenced the home supporters by finding the back of the net after County failed to deal with Kevin Nicholson's free-kick.

Karl Hawley almost won in for County three minutes from time but his header came back off the post.
