Forest Green booked their play-off place thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win at Oldham.

Oldham threatened twice when Dylan Fage’s 30-yard strike fizzed inches wide immediately after Alfie McCalmont’s drive was bravely blocked by Jordan Moore-Taylor.

Rovers looked edgy in the opening half-hour, but they almost struck when Bailey’s angled effort just cleared the crossbar.

Shortly before the break, Callum Whelan sent Fage through one-on-one against Rovers’ goalkeeper Luke McGee, but the Oldham wide man dragged his shot off-target.
