The Seagulls - who currently sit rock-bottom of the League Two table - were unable to defeat their Conference North opponents after 210 minutes of football, before finally over-coming them in sudden-death penalties.

Torquay's former Forest goalkeeper Andy Marriott was the hero, saving Lee Woods' crucial seventh spot-kick, before slamming home the decisive penalty himself.

Thor: Another long trip
Leroy Rosenior's ailing side had been unable to find the net in 120 minutes of time against the part-timers, with the game - played in-front of watching County management duo Gudjon Thordarson and Ross MacLaren - scrappy for long periods.

Torquay's success will disappoint the Magpies' supporters, who already had to endure the five-hour drive to Devon on the opening day of the campaign, with that game also finishing 0-0.

And now the travelling Magpies' will make the same trip on December 3rd, just a week after Thordarson's side host the Seagulls' in the League.

Notts gained their place in the Second Round of the Cup thanks to an excellent 2-0 win at Bristol City.
