Dover Athletic 0-0 Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green's winless run was stretched to five matches after they were held to a goalless draw at Dover.

Lee Hughes fired wide before Clovis Kamdjo was narrowly off target with a header in a breathless first 10 minutes.

Dover's best chance came in the second half when Chris Kinnear headed wide from a corner.

Kurtis Guthrie had the ball in the net for Rovers after 71 minutes but the goal was ruled out for a foul.

Forest Green manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

Pennock on Dover v Forest Green

"It's a difficult place to come. They've won their last six games on the spin here, they're saying it's a fortress.

"I'll take a 0-0 away from home all day long. We've been conceding a few goals in the last three games, so we were working on that last week.

"They've done really well, the back four and Sam (Russell) - and collectively it was better."
