Yeovil Town 0-0 Forest Green Rovers

Yeovil and Forest Green both secured their Football League status after they played out a goalless draw.

Both teams needed at least a point to be sure of retaining their places in League Two, and they achieved that in a tight battle at Huish Park.

The visitors had the better of what was a nervy first half of very few chances.

Christian Doidge flicked on a cross that Haydn Hollis stretched to volley at the far post but Jonny Maddison did excellently to dive across his goal and turn it over. From the resulting corner Doidge then headed against the outside of the post.

Yeovil went close themselves shortly after the break as Francois Zoko connected with a low Otis Khan cross but goalkeeper Bradley Collins bravely threw himself at the shot, deflecting it wide from two yards but injuring himself in the process.

Collins was on hand again to tip an Alex Fisher volley over shortly after, before being forced off with injury and replaced by Cameron Belford.
