FOREST Green Rovers fell to the bottom of the League Two table on Saturday following their 2-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.

Doncaster collected a third successive league triumph to leave Rovers bottom of the pile with seven games to go in the 2023/24 season.

A Luke Molyneux strike and a Richard Keogh own goal helped the hosts continue their impressive recent run and compound the relegation fears of their opponents.

Doncaster dominated possession in the first half but struggled to convert it into clear-cut chances.

Owen Bailey headed wide from a great position at the back post as he met a James Maxwell cross while
Joe Ironside nodded straight at Forest Green keeper Vicente Reyes with Hakeeb Adelakun also drawing a save from the Norwich City loanee.

The hosts broke the deadlock after 62 minutes when Molyneux pounced on a loose ball and calmly finished from 10 yards.

Although Forest Green boss Steve Cotterill threw on plenty of attacking options, the visitors struggled to impose themselves on the game.

And Doncaster made sure of the win four minutes from time when Keogh turned into his own net as he attempted to block a cross from Molyneux.

Steve Cotterill's Forest Green are still in the hunt for survival, but it is looking increasingly difficult with seven games remaining. They are only one points off Colchester in 22nd but have played two games more.

They will be relying on them to drop more points and hope they can discover some form for the run-in or else they will be relegated form the Football League and into the National League.
