Altrincham 2-2 Forest Green Rovers

Ten-man Forest Green extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a hard-earned point at Altrincham.

Jon Parkin's unstoppable shot from outside the area, his ninth goal in seven games, gave Rovers an early lead.

Kyle Perry pounced on a loose ball to level moments later, before Damian Reeves's 15th of the season put Altrincham ahead at the break.

Daniel Coles was dismissed for a second booking, but not before Rob Sinclair finished James Marwood's cross for 2-2.

Rovers maintain their place in the play-offs, four points clear of sixth-placed Eastleigh.

Forest Green Rovers manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I thought we were the second best team for a good hour, I thought they played really well.

"We're conceding straight after scoring and we're not learning at the moment, that's the problem.

"We've got to do something because we just switched off, the first goal was terrible from our point of view.

"I was pleased to go in at 2-1 down, because they were on the front foot today. There are some games where you're on top and others where you're not and I'd like to give them a lot of credit because they deserve it."
