Gulls rocked by 60-yarder!

Rocked by a freak opening goal by Burton Albion centre-back John Brayford after 13 minutes, Torquay United slid to their first defeat under manager Paul Buckle at the Pirelli Stadium last night.

And they had fit-again midfielder Lee Mansell sent off in stoppage time.

Nobody could deny that Nigel Clough's Brewers deserved to end the Gulls' seven-match unbeaten run, for they were clearly the better side on the night.

And in left winger Keith Gilroy they had a match winner.

But United goalie Simon Rayner will still be kicking himself for misjudging Brayford's 60-yard free-kick which set Albion on their way.

United, outplayed in midfield, fell further behind when they allowed Andy Gooding too much room in the 32nd minute.

And, although substitute Elliot Benyon gave United fans some hope with his first touch a quarter of an hour from time, Gilroy set up Albion's clincher for Shaun Harrad five minutes from time.

United made two changes, both of them forced by injury.

Paul Hinshelwood came in for his debut at right-back, because Chris Robertson has an Achilles problem.

But Lee Mansell, sidelined for the last three games, was fit to return in midfield for groin strain victim Chris Hargreaves.

Burton were again without their top striker Daryl Clare, but they gave home debuts to recent loan signings Andy Gooding from Coventry and Sam Aiston from Northampton.

Although United started brightly as usual, Burton soon got into their stride.

Their main threat was Keith Gilroy down the left wing. Gilroy kept cutting inside Hinshelwood to cause problems.

Jake Edwards miskicked one early chance from a Gilroy pass and in the eighth minute it took an alert smother off his line by Rayner to foil Shaun Harrad on a delicious through-ball by Gilroy.

Burton may have been on top, but they could never have dreamed of taking the lead as they did in the 13th minute.

Albion were awarded a free-kick inside their own half, and defender Brayford took it.

The range must have been at least 60 yards, and the ball was badly overhit - it was nowhere near the teammates for whom Brayford was aiming.

But it also deceived Rayner, who came out for what looked like an easy take, only to realise too late that he had misjudged the flight of the ball, which sailed over his head and off his fingertips into the net.

United were clearly rattled, and Hinshelwood was soon booked for a rash challenge, deep in Burton's own half, on Harrad.

There could have been two more goals, one at each end, in the 26th minute.

Mansell took a short free-kick 25 yards out, Kevin Nicholson caught it perfectly and it took a brilliant low save by veteran Kevin Poole to deny United an equaliser.

But Burton then counter-attacked so effectively that Rayner had to get down just as smartly as Poole had done to keep out Aaron Webster's shot after the Albion player had swopped passes with Gilroy.

United, who were hanging on in the face of an impressive display by the home side, fell further behind in the 32nd minute. And again it was a sloppy goal to concede.

Gooding should have been picked up, but he was allowed to run from midfield, deep into the heart of United's retreating defence before tucking a 15-yard right-foot shot into the bottom right-hand corner.

Lee Phillips twice went close during the closing stages of the first half.

United put together their best move so far, between Hinshelwood, Mansell and Stevens down the right, with Phillips glancing Stevens' final cross wide.

Sam Aiston went into referee Mike Oliver's book for a lunging foul on Nicholson in the 43rd minute.

Then Phillips had his second near-miss, stretching to volley wide after a clever flick-on by Sills.

Buckle made his first change at half-time, sending on Tony Bedeau for Stevens on the right wing.

And within moments of the restart Bedeau found Phillips with a diagonal cross and Phillips' turn and cross was just deflected behind for a corner by Poole.

United could make nothing of that set-piece and Burton, intent on catching the Gulls on the counter, were soon at their throats again.

A dashing run and shot by Aiston forced a good low save by Rayner. Then Harrad volleyed not far over after a moment of hesitation between Todd and Hinshelwood.

Rayner clattered into Woods and Harrad when the Gulls' captain had the situation under control just inside his own area.

After Zebroski picked up a booking for dissent by action - he slammed the ball down in frustration after an attack fizzled out - United made a second change.

Ishmael Welsh replaced Sills in attack - Welsh went to the left wing, with Zebroski moving up front alongside Phillips.

Brayford was booked for hauling Phillips down just outside the Burton penalty area, but Mansell's short free-kick left Nicholson with little time to get a telling shot off, and he pulled it wide of goal.

United were certainly trying hard to salvage something from the match, and in the 75th minute Buckle made his last throw of the dice - striker Elliot Benyon for Phillips.

It proved a dream substitution, for a minute later, Benyon scored with his first touch.

Zebroski found Bedeau on the right, he whipped in a good early cross and Benyon read it to volley home first time at the near post from five yards.

For a few minutes United's travelling fans believed that they could snatch a point.

But in the 84th minute Burton put the issue beyond doubt - and again it was Gilroy who did the damage.

Burton's left winger beat two United defenders in a touchline run, let fly with a cross-shot and Harrad was unmarked at the far post to finish with a firm right-foot shot which gave Rayner no chance.

And to rub salt into United's wounds, they were reduced to ten men deep in stoppage time.

Mansell appeared to stamp on McGrath as they clashed in midfield, and referee Oliver had no hesitation in sending the United man off.

Buckle, watching on the touchline not far away, remained passive throughout, which was a hint of what he thought about it all.

So I guess using LiveSoccerTV.com is out of the question then?

Well, it's more time consuming to use. For example, if you select all Canadian channels, the resulting list is not correct: there are many Canadian channels missing (including basic ones like Sportsnet), so I'd have to build the list manually. I was already looking to stop making these TV lists for a while, so the changes at soccerTV.com provided a good opportunity.

You or others are welcome to take over.
