Cheltenham captain Alan Bennett and Torquay counterpart Mark Ellis were in agreement that their play-off semi-final is far from over, despite the Robins holding a 2-0 advantage from Sunday's first leg.
Goals from Jermaine McGlashan and Ben Burgess have put Cheltenham in the driving seat heading into Thursday evening's decisive second leg at Plainmoor.
However, Robins skipper Bennett insists there is still everything to play for at the halfway stage of the tie.
He said: "It is only half-time at the moment but if you had asked if we would have taken that result beforehand - absolutely.
"Nothing has been determined yet though and we need to prepare properly for Thursday."
Ellis added: "We have another 90 minutes and if we can get an early goal at our place then we are right back in the tie. Their goalkeeper pulled off a number of good saves and we will have it all to do at home but we believe we can turn it around."
