Forest Green suffered their heaviest defeat of the season after Arsenal Under 21s won at the New Lawn. 

Here are the player ratings from a difficult game in the Checkatrade Trophy 

Montgomery - 8 

Made some very good saves. Showed good reflexes and it could have been five or six if not for a couple of his saves. 

Archibald - 5 

Worked hard and tracked back well but was wasteful going forward.

Rawson - 5 

First start since his suspension, seemed to struggle against Arsenal's pace and power

McGinley - 4 

Uncharacteristicaly sloppy on the ball and gave it away far too many times. 

Gunning - 3

Got caught out on a couple of occassions, some erratic defending at times. 

Williams - 4 

Was quite throughout, involved in the penalty incident. 

Worthington - 3 

Gave away possession cheaply. Had a chance to stake a claim but didn't take it. 

Digby - 5 

Worked hard and was up for the fight but a lot went through him and struggled to get a foothold. Subbed. 

Pearce - 6 

Ran his socks off and bravely tried to carry on after a nasty looking challenge from Zelalem which eventually ended his night prematurely. 

Reid - 4 

Wasn't really involved and struggled to breach Arsenal's defence. Subbed after 57 minutes.

Morris - 5 

Tried to get involved, dropping deep to get on the ball, one or two nice passes but inaffective on the whole, again, had a big chance to prove himself but didn't really take his chance. 


Grubb - 7 

Scored a lovely individual goal, tested the keeper with a decent free kick. Was given man of the match. 

Campbell - 4 

Struggled to have an effect on the game when he came on.

Brown - 5 

Was very quiet and failed to inspire Rovers from the bench.
