Forest Green Rovers 1-0 Bromley

Forest Green are up to second place in the National League after edging out Bromley at the New Lawn.

Despite scoring 15 goals in their previous five games the hosts struggled to break down Bromley before the break.

Former Fulham midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown looked the likeliest for Forest Green, firing several shots just wide, while the lively 24-year-old almost set up Elliott Frear just after the half-hour mark only to be thwarted by Bromley goalkeeper Alan Julian.

Bromley hit a post through Rob Swaine just after the break, but Marsh-Brown finally got a reward for his endeavour by turning in Frear's cross in the 74th minute to score the only goal.
