Forest Green given huge boost to survival hopes after Tranmere victory


League Two: Forest Green 1 Tranmere Rovers 0

One swallow does not make a summer, but miracle worker Steve Cotterill will be keeping everything crossed as ten-man Forest Green gave their League Two survival hopes a massive lift with a vital 1-0 home win over Tranmere Rovers.

Midfielder Charlie McCann’s sumptuous hit beyond former Forest Green keeper Luke McGee was enough to grab three crucial points despite giant defender Ryan Inniss being sent off.

Earlier, the returning Jordan Moore-Taylor headed narrowly past his own post after a mix-up with Norwich City loan goalkeeper Vicente Reyes.

It was Reyes who did well to glove Rob Apter’s howitzer around the post.

The impressive Reyes thwarted Apter again.

Inniss was given a second yellow in the dying embers of the game, but Cotterill’s Rovers were resolute as they registered what could be a season defining moment.
