Match report courtesy of Coventry Telegraph;

Boro grabbed a deserved point – and probably should have had three – against moneybags Conference Premier promotion-favourites Forest Green.

The visitors had the first serious attempt on goal after eight minutes, James Norwood’s surging run ending with a left-foot shot that debutant keeper James Belshaw saved comfortably.

Kevin Wilkin’s men took a deserved lead in the 18th minute when Theo Streete intercepted and used his strength to win a corner on the right.

Adam Walker took it and his in-swinging flag kick was met at the near post by Andy Brown who expertly directed his header past Forest Green keeper Sam Russell.

Five minutes later there was another opening as Amari’i Bell, on a season’s loan from Birmingham City, and Louis Moult linked down the right and the latter found Wes York in space but his shot was too close to Russell.

Bell started the game brightly but his over-confidence almost cost Boro as Norwood robbed him of possession but, with only Belshaw to beat, shot a yard over from 20 yards.

Forest Green went close just before the interval when Matt Taylor played the ball in, Belshaw couldn’t gather but Jon Adams was on hand to clear the danger.

Chris Stokes almost found a way through popping up in the inside left position from Matt Taylor’s pass but he fired the ball harmlessly wide of Belshaw’s far post.

Brown was inches away from adding a second 16 minutes from time when Gareth Dean headed the ball goal-wards but the striker just failed to get a touch as it dropped over his shoulder in the six yard box.

But Boro were undone in the 77th minute when they were caught short of numbers at the back and left-back Stokes slid a ball across the face of goal and it somehow found its way to right-back Jared Hodgkiss at the far post and he bundled it past Belshaw.

Substitute Yan Klukowski then had a sight of goal but his volley bounced up into the arms of Belshaw and a minute from time a Taylor cross was missed by Matthew Barnes-Homer.
