Forest Green Rovers 1-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh scored late on to earn themselves a point on the road at Forest Green Rovers in the Conference.

Lee Hughes had the best chance of the first half for the hosts but fired over the bar when put through by David Pipe.

Kurtis Guthrie saw his shot well saved by Ross Flitney, while at the other end Ben Strevens shot over from long range.

Clovis Kamdjo pounced on to a sloppy back pass to put the hosts ahead, while James Constable was first to react to Craig McAllister's cross to level.

Earlier, Flitney had pulled off a great save from Sam Wedgbury to stop the hosts from taking a two-goal lead.

Forest Green manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I'm disappointed, to be honest. I thought it was a game we should have won.

"We should have been more ruthless in both boxes and that's something I'll deal with.

"We should have done better with the ball, especially in the first half.

"When you go into a 1-0 lead, you should really kill the game off."
