North Ferriby United 0-3 Forest Green Rovers

North Ferriby's troubles continued with a home defeat by National League leaders Forest Green.

Instead of the hosts making their possession and chances count, Forest Green's Ethan Pinnock glanced in Liam Noble's free-kick to give his side the half-time lead.

The Villagers' miserable luck was emphasised when they continued to push after the break, but Vinny Mukendi's header was cleared off the line by Darren Carter.

Forest Green absorbed the pressure and went up the other end to score two late goals.

Charlie Clough headed in Noble's corner, and there was time for substitute Christian Doidge to apply a simple finish, after Elliott Frear's effort rebounded off the post.
