Wrexham suffered a second successive defeat as title-chasing Forest Green Rovers ran out 3-0 winners at The New Lawn.

The Reds were well beaten and didn't force Rovers goalkeeper Sam Russell into one save all game.

Forest Green bossed the first half and had a couple of chances to take the lead through Liam Noble, Reds keeper Chris Dunn pulling off one superb save.

But the hosts took the lead in the 45th minute, a free-kick wasn't cleared and Dale Bennett fired home following a scramble in the box.

The hosts made it 2-0 after 48 minutes, Kaiyne Woolery was brought down in the area by Martin Riley and Noble slotted home the penalty.

Forest Green increased their advantage on 64 minutes, Doidge raced onto Noble’s throughout and his looping shot over the advancing Dunn found the back of the net.

Dunn made a couple of good saves to prevent Rovers adding to their tally while Wrexham never threatened a goal at the other end.

Wrexham (4-4-2): Dunn; Carrington, Riley, Tilt, Jennings; Barry (Allen 53), Penn (Evans 89), Rutherford, Shenton; White, McLeod (Massanka 53). Subs not used: Jalal, Harry.
