Gary: Their goalkeeper saved them – video

25 November 2017

Boss Gary Johnson rued his side's missed opportunities and injury setbacks after the Robins took a point away from the derby against Forest Green Rovers.

The Robins dominated the county's first ever league derby and earned a share of the spoils through Mo Eisa, but the top scorer was later withdrawn with a calf injury.

"They got their chance from a poor mistake and obviously if you go a goal down it's disappointing, but the boys came back and it was chance after chance, especially in the second half.

"The keeper gave us a couple of chances but he saved his team. There were a couple of chances that should have definitely been goals, but I don't want to disrespect them.

"They were on a bit of a run of form but on the day we created more opportunities - but that means nothing if you draw the game.

"I was pleased with the way with the team responded but you're always disappointed that you've let the goal in early.

"We've got two weeks to reflect, which is probably good for Mo and his torn calf, which is probably what he's got.

"What we're doing with all the injuries we've got is nothing short of miraculous, but we have just got to score more goals."
