Post-match: Pennock on Forest Green v Alfreton

Forest Green manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"We could have played better, but a great three points and a clean sheet as well, so I can't complain.

"He (Lee Hughes) was non existent in the first half but he scored the goal, which is fantastic, what a lovely habit to have.

"I'm very pleased, with nine points out of nine, but there's a long way to go, both on and off the pitch."
