Forest Green's 100% winning record in the National League continued with a comfortable victory over Kidderminster.

After a goalless first-half with few chances, Keanu Marsh-Brown gave the visitors the lead, rifling his shot into the top corner.

Rovers doubled their advantage shortly after thanks to Jon Parkin's bullet header from David Pipe's cross.

Kidderminster could only muster one shot on target in the whole game and remain winless after six league games.

Forest Green boss Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I thought we controlled it from the first whistle to the last whistle in some ways, I can't remember Johnny Maxted having a save to make.

"They've got some good players here, they work very hard with each other and it is a difficult place to come.

"I just thought if we had that little bit of quality then, in front of goal which we did have, then we'd come away with the three points, so it was good, I'm delighted."
