Forest Green 1-2 Eastbourne

Eastbourne snatched a dramatic victory at relegation-threatened Forest Green thanks to Matt Smart's late header.

But Jonathan Smith levelled for Borough with a curling shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

And, with both sides pushing forward in search of a winner, Nathan Crabb fired in a wicked cross that Smart met from six yards to give his side the points.
