Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Forest Green Rovers

Tranmere missed the chance to keep up the pace with National League leaders Lincoln as Kaiyne Woolery's late goal handed third-placed Forest Green a 1-0 win.

Woolery kept his cool to slot past goalkeeper Scott Davies in the 85th minute to end Tranmere's six-match winning run and leave them three points behind the Imps.

Tranmere, who beat Solihull Moors 9-0 at the weekend, struggled with their finishing this time around as Connor Jennings and James Norwood missed decent opportunities.

Adam Buxton was also denied, his 25-yard free-kick hitting the crossbar in the 30th minute, and Forest Green made them pay as Woolery struck the winner late on.
