Torquay were made to rue a missed penalty from Nicky Wroe as they had to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury

The visitors were the better side for long stages and created the clearer chances, with sub Wayne Carlisle crashing a 20-yard drive against the post five minutes from time.

Shrewsbury started brightly and raced into a fifth minute lead, Jake Robinson dispossessing a hesitant Mark Ellis and breaking into the box before cracking home a shot off the far post for his eighth goal of the season.

But Torquay, now without a win in six games, responded positively and controlled the rest of the first half for long stages, forcing two penalties.

The first in the 23rd minute was spurned, Wroe firing high and wide after goalkeeper Chris Neal brought down Elliot Benyon.

But Benyon made no such mistake 11 minutes later when referee Chris Sarginson once again pointed to the spot, the striker squeezing home his penalty after Eunan O'Kane was upended by Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.
