Forest Green extended their unbeaten run to five matches with a fine 2-0 away win over struggling Carlisle on Saturday.

Goals from Jamille Matt and Nicky Cadden did the damage as Rovers proved too strong for the Cumbrians.

Matt fired the visitors into a deserved lead in the 29th minute with his seventh goal of the season in all competitions.

Ben Stevenson’s corner avoided everyone and Matt was waiting to fire home at the back post with a sweet finish.

And it got even better for high-flying Rovers just three minutes later as Cadden pounced to double the lead, the Scottish midfielder picking out the bottom right corner with a stunning strike.

Carlisle had chances of their own but lacked a killer instinct and have now not won in their last four league outings.

Brennan Dickenson shot agonisingly wide and Gime Toure wasted excellent chances as the home side’s struggles continued.

Rovers boss Rob Edwards saluted his side as they cemented their spot at the top of League Two.

“I’m really pleased, it’s a tough place to come and they haven’t lost here in the league yet this season,” he said.

“The lads did really well, it wasn’t easy, it was a little bit too open at times for my liking, but in a way that suits us as well because we’ve got threats in different positions all over the pitch. I thought there were some really good individual performances as well as a good collective performance.

“I thought we started really well, but they grew into it after 10-15 minutes and, when teams come on to us, we do look a bit of a threat going that way as well on the counter-attack.

“We’re confident at the moment that we can keep it down to zero and ones, keep the ball out the net and people were putting their bodies on the line like Jordan Moore-Taylor at the end.

“But we also have people who can score goals and we scored two really good ones as well.”

Rovers have a four point lead at the top of League Two ahead of Saturday's clash with Swindon.

The Robins moved into the play off places with a 3-1 win away to Bristol Rovers.
