Forest Green Rovers 4-1 Welling United

Jon Parkin
Jon Parkin has scored 11 goals in the Conference for Forest Green since moving from Fleetwood Town last summer

Jon Parkin scored twice as Forest Green Rovers moved to within two points of Conference play-off places with a comfortable win over Welling.

But it was the visitors that took the lead when striker Joe Healy found the bottom corner after a well worked move.

However, Rovers were level three minutes later when striker Parkin finished Elliott Frear's centre.

The same two combined for Parkin's second, before Kurtis Guthrie and then James Norwood secured the three points.
