Forest Green 2-3 Exeter

Forest Green Rovers stay rooted to the bottom of the Conference after crashing at home to Exeter. Richard Hodgson gave the hosts a 14th-minute lead after good work from Mark Beesley, but Santos Gaia levelled. Sean Devine turned the game on its head following up after Barry McConnell's header came back off the woodwork. Charlie Griffin won and converted a penalty, but Rovers' celebrations were cut short when McConnell headed in Steve Flack's cross soon after.
