Forest Green edge closer to safety while Chesterfield face the drop

Forest Green virtually rubber-stamped their League Two status, but Chesterfield are all but down as stoppage-time goals from substitute Dayle Grubb and Christian Doidge guided Rovers to a 4-1 victory.
Jack Lester's basement-boys were left to rue a raft of his missed chances and now face a huge fight to stave-off back-to-back relegations.
Rovers took the lead in the 26th minute. Scott Laird arrowed in an angle drive from 25 yards.
Kristian Dennis levelled things up from the penalty spot for Chesterfield in the 36th minute after Reuben Reid clipped Drew Talbot inside the box.
Goalkeeper Brad Collins saved Rovers with outstanding reflexes as he denied Dennis with sharp hands from a searching Jacob Brown cross.
With 15 minutes to go Forest Green boss Mark Cooper introduced Dayle Grubb and his impact was immediate, just two minutes after coming on, he rolled in Doidge who finished with aplomb for his 23rd goal of the season in the 77th minute.
Following the goal, a Chesterfield fan entered the pitch to vent his frustration.
Chesterfield's Jacob Brown struck the post in the 90th minute and as the game entered six-added minutes an impish piece of skill from Grubb made it 3-1 in the 94th minute. A minute later Alex Bray was tripped in the box for Doidge to convert his second and Rovers' fourth.
