Solihull Moors 0-1 Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green maintained their four-point lead at the top of the National League, and kept a seventh consecutive clean sheet, with a 1-0 win over Solihull Moors.

It took until the second half, but the league leaders finally broke the deadlock on the hour mark with the help of Solihull captain Liam Daly, who put through his own net from Dan Wishart's fizzing cross.

The situation went from bad to worse for the hosts with 10 minutes left, when Darryl Knights was sent off.

Christian Doidge almost doubled the lead in stoppage time, but he could not find the target after a quick turn in the area.
