Fleetwood boss Micky Mellon was disappointed to share the points as the Cod Army were held to a goalless draw by Torquay on their Football League debut.
Town squandered a number of clear-cut chances, failing to make the most of a dominant display against their resolute visitors.
Andy Mangan twice blasted over having been left unmarked at the back post.
Jon Parkin went close a number of times, the big striker a constant menace in the visitors' box.
But Michael Poke was up to the challenge in the Torquay goal, pulling off a number of key saves including a finger-tip effort to deny full-back Shaun Beeley from 20 yards.
Mellon said: "I think, at the end of the day, I'll be more disappointed with a point than they will. But that is the nature of the game.
"We know we're in a much tougher league, but on another day, we'd have been celebrating a win."
Torquay manager Martin Ling admitted he was content to leave Highbury with a point.
"They are new to the Football League and obviously it was a big occasion for Fleetwood. It was a hard-earned point," said Ling.
"We did create a lot of chances, in the second half, when we managed to get behind them. If we had scored then we could have taken all three points."
