Forest Green 1-1 Macclesfield

Chris Stokes's late equaliser extended Forest Green's unbeaten run to six as they drew with Macclesfield.

The visitors went ahead when Craig Braham-Barrett's delivery was turned home by Waide Fairhurst.

Peter Winn went close to doubling the Silkmen's advantage, but his curling free-kick produced a stunning save from Rovers keeper Sam Russell.

And the hosts were level late on as Stokes powered home a volley to earn a share of the spoils.


Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I'm delighted that we just kept on going. I certainly feel we at least deserved a point and if either team deserved to win the game, it was us.

"We didn't play to our strengths and intensity in the first half.

"We've played really well in the second half and did OK in the first but we've fallen to a unfortunate goal and those things happen."
