Steve Fallon's side remain second in the Blue Square Premier

Promotion-chasing Histon came from two goals behind to earn a dramatic late draw at Forest Green.

Rovers went in front when Andrew Mangan fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards and Conal Platt doubled their advantage from the penalty spot.

Histon squandered a chance to get back into the game as Gareth Gwillim missed his spot-kick, but they did pull one back through Nathaniel Knight-Percival.

A point was secured late on as Josh Simpson rifled home from 25 yards.
