Howe about that then?

Torquay United target man Rene Howe smashed an 89th-minute winner as the Gulls staged a remarkable comeback from 3-0 down to beat Aldershot 4-3 at rain-lashed Plainmoor.

Howe's seventh goal of the season capped a memorable night for Martin Ling's side as substitute Ashley Yeoman levelled in the 84th minute from Lee Mansell's cross.

Fellow sub Ryan Jarvis slid in to make it 3-2 in the 69th minute after unselfish play by Howe.

Billy Bodin sparked United's incredible revival with his 48th-minute close-range strike after a superb double save from Shots keeper Jamie Young to deny Nathan Craig and then Howe.

Shots striker Craig Reid completed his quick-fire hat-trick in the 47th minute after Danny Hylton's strike was saved by United keeper Michael Poke.

Reid opened the scoring on 28 minutes when he steered in Alex Rodman's free-kick from the left.

He doubled his tally from a 37th-minute penalty after United right-back Joe Oastler fouled Hylton.
