Forest Green made it back-to-back 1-0 home wins in their League Two victory over Grimsby Town but how did we rate the players?

Ratings out of 10

Jo Wollacott 6 Couple of scratchy clearances, but little to do on his league debut for Forest Green. Produced a smart stop in the second-half.

Dom Bernard 7 A more than capable deputy for Liam Shephard and played his part in Junior Mondal’s goal.

Nathan McGinley 7 Solid throughout and nullified the attacking intent of Matt Green.

Matt Mills 7 Had giant Grimsby striker James Hanson in his pocket. Strolled through the game with ease – key to Rovers’ solidity at the back.

Udoka Godwin-Malife 8 Came in for Farrend Rawson (concussion) and didn’t disappoint. Always eager to get on the front foot and drive forward.

Joe Mills 7 Red-hot this season and yet another eye-catching performance. A real threat when going forward.

Kevin Dawson 7 Neat and tidy and a real force in central midfield and the perfect foil for Carl Winchester.

Ebou Adams 6 First league start and added legs to Rovers’ midfield. A few wayward passes as the game entered the final phases.

Carl Winchester 7 Boundless energy from the Irishman – has a big part to play this season.

Matt Stevens 6 Hooked at the break after struggling to get into the game as Grimsby piled bodies behind the ball.

Shawn McCoulsky 6 Scant opportunities to make any significant impact.

Dayle Grubb drives forward


Dayle Grubb 7 Mark Cooper reiterated the importance of his bench and Grubb delivered after entering the fray at the break. Playing the number 10 role, he was quickly into his stride.

Junior Mondal 7 Made his mark with the only goal of the game, finding the net within seven minutes of stepping off the bench.
