Usual pathetic turnout from forest green. Feel guilty as a tranmere fan that we let them into the league and ruin average attendances! . pic.twitter.com/jJrFtd96oq

The only goal of the game came just two minutes into the second half when Forest Green’s Junior Mondal found the top left corner.
Tranmere had plenty of chances to find the net throughout the game. James Norwood launched an attempted lob over the bar, Paul Mullin had his overhead kick brilliantly kept out by keeper James Montgomery and also smashed the post from a 25-yard free kick.
The was a long delay in the game as Tranmere centre-back Mark Ellis suffered a knee injury. The player went to hospital to have a scan, Micky Mellon doesn’t confirm reports that he’s dislocated his knee but says he “has a sore one” according to @mattjones_sport on Twitter.
The result meant a blow to Tranmere’s automatic promotion hopes, they remain 5th and four points off third place Milton Keynes Dons with three games to go.
A place below Tranmere is Forest Green Rovers on a point less. The win for them helps them go closer to claiming a playoff place, now just six points ahead of Carlisle, Exeter the only other team in the playoffs who could miss out.
