Forest Green 3-0 Bath City

Reece Styche scored twice as Forest Green secured their first home win of the season with a dominant display against Bath.

Rovers took the lead when Styche fired home a low shot after Paul Stonehouse misdirected a headed clearance.

Chris Stokes doubled the advantage with a shot which was deflected over keeper Glyn Garner off Joe Burnell.

And when Garner failed to deal with a high ball Styche was on hand to head home his second.
