FOREST GREEN manager Mark Cooper vented his spleen at a section of fans after his side edged a rollercoaster seven-goal thriller at Mansfield Town.

Cooper raged: “Sometimes you do find yourself down in the game and don't need the fans to start singing the manager out – it's embarrassing. Forest Green towards the top of League Two? Wake up and get a life!

“The majority of them are really good but a few of them are deluded and need to get behind the players.

“I have full belief in this squad of players and still want to add to it. It's about time some other people started believing in them.

“We never looked out of the game and played some great  football and had some  great chances and when we were 2-0 down and  their goalkeeper got man-of-the- match and had some brilliant chances in the first half and  I thought the least we deserved was 2-1.

“It's a good way to win as you know there's no way back for the opposition because it's that late,” said Cooper.

“We have been so strong defensively this year, then we now can't buy a clean sheet.

“But we scored four goals and three points is the main thing as we continue our quest to be the little village team trying to get into League One.”
