The Reds were well beaten and didn't force Rovers goalkeeper Sam Russell
into one save all game.
Forest Green bossed the first half and had a couple of chances to take the
lead through Liam Noble, Reds keeper Chris Dunn pulling off one superb save.
But the hosts took the lead in the 45th minute, a free-kick wasn't cleared
and Dale Bennett fired home following a scramble in the box.
The hosts made it 2-0 after 48 minutes, Kaiyne Woolery was brought down in
the area by Martin Riley and Noble slotted home the penalty.
Forest Green increased their advantage on 64 minutes, Christian Doidge
raced onto Noble’s throughout and his looping shot over the advancing Dunn
found the back of the net.
Dunn made a couple of good saves to prevent Rovers adding to their tally
while Wrexham never threatened a goal at the other end.
Dagenham & Redbridge were looking to take advantage of Tranmere Rovers`
involvement in the Buildbase FA Trophy by moving above them into third place.
However, they came unstuck after their long trek to Cumbria to take on
Barrow AFC, who ran out 2-1 winners at the Furness Building Society Stadium to
rekindle their own play-off hopes.
Cory Whitely gave the Daggers an 11th minute lead from a narrow
But the Bluebirds got themselves back on level terms 3 minutes before
half-time from the penalty spot after Craig Robson was adjudged to have fouled
Liam Hughes, who got up to beat Elliot Justham from the spot.
And the home side went ahead on 57 minutes when Lindon Meikle, recalled
from his loan spell, was fouled and Moussa Diarra netted the resulting
free-kick at the far post.
The Daggers came close to equalising in stoppage time when new signing from
Eastbourne Borough, Elliott Romain, had a header cleared off the line after
coming off the bench for his debut.
Gateshead remain in fifth spot after beating struggling Woking 2-1 at the
It was the visitors who took the lead after 21 minutes with literally the
first chance of the game as Terell Thomas connected with Fabio Saraiva's corner
and his header deflected past James Mongomery.
Gateshead were disappointing in the first half, especially for a side who
went into the match unbeaten in seven games.
But they improved after the break and pulled level 7 minutes in when Danny
Johnson stretched his neck muscles to head a bouncing ball past Michael Poke.
However, it looked as if the Cards were going to escape back down the A1
with a point, but with Gateshead throwing bodies forward in search of a winner,
it finally came in time added on when Wes York turned in sub Mitch Brundle's
cross from close range.
The defeat leaves Woking in the bottom four.
Dover Athletic are a couple of points behind Gateshead in sixth after
edging the Kent derby with Bromley at Crabble.
Dover entered the match on a three-game winless run and needed three points
to re-ignite their play-off challenge.
The Whites had failed to score in their last three games either, but managed
to break that drought with a goal from Joe Healy on the hour-mark.
Healy managed to beat the excellent Ross Flitney from close range.
And the scorer turned hero at the other end as Healy's goalline clearance in
the dying stages ensured Dover claimed the points.
Aldershot Town, along with Barrow, are snapping at Dover`s heels as they
also won on Saturday.
The Shots won 2-0 at the EBB Stadium against a Sutton United side who are
now looking nervously over their shoulders at the drop zone rapidly closing up
After a fairly even opening period, the home side broke the deadlock in
first half injury-time in rather bizarre circumstances.
After a quick counter, Idris Kanu was released on the left and had a shot
blocked, Shamir Fenelon battled for the ball and in trying to clear, Nicky
Bailey smacked the ball into goalkeeper Will Puddy`s chest and the ball flew
into the net.
The home side held on to that lead throughout the second half as the U`s
rarely seriously threatened.
The game was finally put to bed 4 minutes into stoppage time, when fine
play on halfway sent sub Anthony Straker clear, his low cross found Bernard Mensah
in the middle to lash in a composed finish past Puddy.
There was also late drama at Chester FC, who conceded in the 90th minute as
Eastleigh claimed a last-gasp away win.
A second successive win for Richard Hill`s side came as a bit of a surprise
as they were second best for long periods of the game.
But the Hampshire side took all three points at the Lookers Vauxhall
Stadium in the 90th minute when Scott Wilson turned in Michael
Guiseley AFC picked up a very useful point after a goalless draw at Meadow
Park against mid-table Boreham Wood.
The Lions are now in sixteenth place, seven points above the drop zone.
However, it wasn`t such good news for Southport or North Ferriby United,
who were both beaten to remain bottom and second-bottom respectively.
Sam Corne proved to be Braintree Town`s hero at Cressing Road as he bagged
a brace in their 2-0 win against Southport.
He opened the scoring just before half-time and then grabbed a second with
a screamer from 25 yards just shy of the hour-mark.
The win lifts the Iron seven points clear of fourth-bottom Woking.
North Ferriby were very disappointing in going down to a 4-1 defeat at
Church Lane against mid-table Solihull Moors.
It was all-square at the break after Simeon Maye had put Moors in front
after 43 minutes, only for Robbie Tinkler to equalise right on the stroke of
the whistle for the interval.
Omari Sterling-James restored the visitors` lead on 66 minutes and George
Carline virtually assured the points were Moors with a third in the 78th
minute, although sub Nortei Nortey made sure with number four in stoppage time.
