Nuneaton 1-1 Forest Green

Forest Green salvaged a point at Nuneaton with Jared Hodgkiss's late equaliser in the Conference Premier.

Rovers, 8-0 winners in Saturday's season-opener against Hyde, were behind within 20 minutes when Andy Brown nodded in Adam Walker's corner.

The visitors were struggling to make a breakthrough until Hodgkiss converted a Matt Taylor pass with 12 minutes left.

And Rovers could have left with all three points had Yan Klukowski not seen his late effort saved by James Belshaw.


Forest Green manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Gloucestershire:

Post-match: Forest Green's Hockaday

"We were asking for the goal - we gave them a free swing.

"But I thought we got to grips with it in the last 10 minutes of the first half.

"In the second half we had three or four good chances and then we've put it away.

"To go 1-0 down and come away with a point is something we've got to be happy with."
