A 2-0 victory away at bottom of the league Scunthorpe saw Forest Green extend their lead to 4 points at the top, with Harrogate losing 1-0 at Colchester courtesy of a late Sylvester Jasper goal.
It was the defence of Forest Green that impressed this weekend, another clean sheet for the back line, with the goalkeeper and all 4 defenders scoring 6.98’s and having the highest ratings across the team. Despite the modest score line of 2-0 against bottom of the league, fans were still impressed with the match itself, scoring it 7 out of 10 in entertainment.
Sutton United continued their charge up the league after their poor start. A 1-0 victory over Crawley, which saw keeper Dean Bouzanis get man of the match for his afternoon, a penalty save in the 75thminute kept his side in the game, for Olaofe to come off the bench and score late to pick up another 3 points for Sutton, moving them up to 5th. Olaofe earned himself a 7.48 for his contribution off the bench, but it was Bouzanis that grabbed man of the match in this one, scoring a huge 8.32.
Walsall fans were certainly impressed with their 0-0 draw away at play-off placed Leyton Orient. Despite a goalless affair, fans were impressed with what they saw and perhaps feel aggrieved not to come away with all 3 points. Jack Earing scored a huge 8.12 in this goalless draw, with manager Matthew Taylor picking up an impressive 7.74.
