Forest Green Rovers 2-0 Boreham Wood
Late goals lifted National League title hopefuls Forest Green to a hard-fought victory over Boreham Wood at the New Lawn.
Luke Garrard's battling side successfully kept Mark Cooper's hosts at bay until the final seven minutes, after Charlie Cooper and Liam Noble went close for the hosts with efforts in the first half.
After the break, Noble's centre was almost turned into his own goal by Matt Paine, but Grant Smith saved.
The home side had to wait until the dying minutes to finally secure the three points, but netted twice in quick succession.
Debutant substitute Omar Bugiel fed Christian Doidge to slot past Smith, and Bugiel then netted himself after a Noble shot was parried.
