Yeovil 1-0 Forest Green

Kirk Jackson's third goal in five games allowed Yeovil to increase their advantage at the top of the Conference table to five points as they beat Forest Green at home.

The Glovers should have been ahead at the break with Gavin Williams and Michael McIndoe hitting the woodwork in the first 10 minutes.

Defender Colin Pluck also went close in the 17th minute but fired straight at goalkeeper Steve Perrin from six yards.

Forest Green hit back after the break with Alex Sykes forcing Yeovil goalkeeper Chris Weale to tip a fierce shot around the post.

From the resulting corner, Kayode Odejayi sent a header straight into the goalkeeper's arms.

But the league leaders made the vital breakthrough after 69 minutes when Nick Crittenden crossed for Jackson to slot the ball home from six yards.


Yeovil: Weale, Lockwood, Skiverton, Pluck, Crittenden, Way, Johnson, McIndoe, Williams, Lindegaard, Jackson.
Subs: O'Brien, Grant, Collis, Elkholti, Aggrey.

Forest Green: Perrin, Coupe, Richardson, Darren Jones, Jenkins, Langan, Owers, Foster, Sykes, Grayson, Odejayi.
Subs: Meechan, Glassup, Allen, Cook, Cowe.
