FC Halifax Town 1-0 Forest Green Rovers

Halifax picked up back-to-back Conference Premier wins with a narrow victory over 10-man Forest Green.

The hosts took the lead midway through the first half as Marc Roberts headed in Adam Smith's corner from six yards.

Matt Glennon tipped Anthony Barry's effort around the post before denying James Norwood from the resulting corner to keep the Shaymen's lead intact.

Rovers then saw Paul Green dismissed for serious foul play after a challenge on Paul Marshall on 64 minutes.

Post-match: Forest Green's Kevan

Forest Green Rovers assistant manager Dave Kevan told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"We look a little bit more solid at the moment, but we're not taking any chances and we're not probably creating as many as we'd like either.

"I think we got a little bit impatient and tried to force things a little during the second half. Arguably we probably had some better opportunities in the second half but we certainly controlled the game in the first.

"We feel we can play better, but today we felt comfortable and all that was lacking was that final pass or that final foot on goal."
