Forest Green Rovers 4-3 Woking

Forest Green edged Woking in a seven-goal thriller at the New Lawn in the National League.

Keanu Marsh-Brown broke the deadlock for the hosts against the run of play after 37 minutes, before Joey Jones equalised in spectacular fashion from 35 yards.

Gozie Ugwu then headed the visitors in front, but Christian Doidge hit back quickly for Forest Green.

Darren Carter saw a penalty saved by Woking goalkeeper Michael Poke with 23 minutes remaining, before a late brace from Omar Bugiel nudged Forest Green in front.

Terell Thomas pulled one back for the visitors deep into stoppage time.
