Forest Green 1-0 Cambridge Utd
Matt Gadsby
Gadsby's inch-perfect cross set up Rovers' winner
Ten-man Forest Green held on to edge out Conference newcomers Cambridge.

The U's were on top for large periods of the first half but both Andy Duncan and Fola Onibuje were unable to beat keeper Ryan Clarke from close range.

And Rovers made the visitors pay when Scott Rendell headed home Matt Gadsby's cross four minutes after the restart.

Rovers had Abdou Sall sent off for a professional foul on 63 minutes but the U's failed to capitalise and Onibuje missed another good headed chance.
