Wrexham 0-0 Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green extended their unbeaten run to nine games with a stalemate at Wrexham in the Conference.

Jon Parkin and James Marwood had first-half shots saved by Andy Coughlin as Rovers failed to take the lead.

Coughlin palmed away a speculative Parkin attempt and saved Kurtis Guthrie's header, while Wrexham's Elliott Durrell volleyed over the bar.

Blaine Hudson's header was saved by Steve Arnold, before Elliott Frear fired wide late on for Rovers.

Forest Green remain fifth in the Conference with Wrexham 17th - 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"It was a hard earned point. There was a lack of cohesion in our play and it became difficult at times. We haven't played with the fluency that we normally do.

"We had a period in the second half where we started to warm to the task a little bit. I think a point for both sides is probably fair."
