Forest Green Rovers 3-0 Guiseley

Forest Green recorded a routine 3-0 win at home over the National League's bottom side Guiseley.

Darren Carter put the division's pace-setters ahead with a neatly curled shot past Dan Atkinson after 20 minutes.

Adam Lockwood's battlers tried hard to get a third win in a row, but they were out of their depth. Christian Doidge made it 2-0 just after half-time when he turned his marker expertly and promptly bulged the net.

Daniel Wishart sealed affairs on the hour when he drove in a devilish ball and Lions defender Jake Lawlor could only turn the ball into his own goal.

Liam Noble hit the post late on as the Green cruised to victory.
