A Yan Klukowski header sealed victory for Forest Green Rovers at Hereford as the visitors held on to second place.

The Bulls took an early lead when Stefan Stam prodded home from close range following Samuel Clucas's corner.

But Rovers hit back when Ben Wright guided in a free-kick from 30 yards.

Klukowski then rose unchallenged to nod home from Jamie Collins's cross and that goal proved to be the winner as Hereford failed to find a way back into the game.
