Forest Green Rovers 2-1 Woking

Jon Parkin
Jon Parkin now has seven goals in his first season with Forest Green

Forest Green came from behind to beat play-off rivals Woking and climb up to sixth in the Conference.

The visitors would have gone second with a victory and went in front through Dean Morgan's turn and shot on the edge of the area.

Rovers turned it around as Elliott Frear's cross was finally bundled in by Jon Parkin and Luke Oliver headed home Marcus Kelly's corner.

Sam Russell made a string of saves to deny the Cards a late leveller.

Forest Green manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

Pennock on Forest Green v Woking

"It was a great performance in horrible conditions. It was a massive three points.

"We showed everything, it was great. I'm buzzing about it.

"It's massive because if they'd have won today, there would have been a gap between us.

"Now it's only a point and we're in the mix."
