A very valuable point. Well done, lads.
Forest Green played some good football and had some excellent early chances. United battled hard and some superb goalkeeping by Daniel Lloyd-Weston kept us in the game.
We have collected 7 points from our last 3 games against Forest Green (2 games) and Cambridge - more than I anticipated.
