Forest Green drop into the relegation zone after fifth defeat on the spin


Stockport 2 Forest Green 0

Forest Green crashed to their fifth consecutive defeat as their wretched start to the season continued.

Promotion-chasing Stockport posted a comfortable 2-0 triumph over David Horseman’s side, who now find themselves in the relegation places after mustering just seven points from 11 games.

Earlier, Isaac Olaofe nodded in a Will Collar cross past Bristol Rovvers loanee keeper James Belshaw in the 15th minute.

Olaofe conjured County’s second on 35 minutes as he picked out Antoni Sarcevic, who came close to scoring a second soon after the restart when he smacked a half-volley off the crossbar.

Marcel Lavinier was sent off following a second yellow card for Rovers just past the hour-mark.

Belshaw’s brilliance denied both Collar and Paddy Madden as Rovers fell to another alarming defeat.
