Rob Atkinson scored a dramatic injury-time winner as Fleetwood beat Forest Green to stay top of the league.

Rovers went ahead when Matty Taylor fired home from 18 yards following good work from Liam Henderson.

The Cod Army, who have now won their last four matches, levelled as Magno Vieira converted a rebound after Sam Russell had parried Andy Mangan's shot.

Atkinson won it with his first goal for Fleetwood when he met Mangan's cross and blasted past James Bittner.

Hockaday hails 'heroic' performance

"We've given them a right good run for their money and both teams had lots of chances.

"There's a strong argument that we didn't deserve to lose and we are that far from being a very decent team.

"They are hanging in there and full of respect for us which is great.

"We are threadbare now but the lads keep turning in the performances."
