Boreham Wood 0-1 Forest Green Rovers

Kurtis Guthrie
Kurtis Guthrie scored his second goal in as many games for Forest Green

Forest Green maintained their 100% start to the National League season with a win at 10-man Boreham Wood.

Kurtis Guthrie headed the only goal of the game deep in the second half after a well-worked cross from Rob Sinclair.

Billy Clifford was dismissed in the closing minutes for a second bookable offence as Forest Green kept a third clean sheet of the season.

Ricky Shakes hit the crossbar with Boreham Wood's best chance after he chipped Rovers goalkeeper Jonny Maxted.
