Forest Green Rovers 1 Dartford 0
Dartford's six-game unbeaten run came to an end at Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.
On-loan strikers Matt Godden and Adam Birchall returned to the Darts team, having been ineligible for their FA Cup tie against Ebbsfleet.
Meanwhile, managerless Forest Green came into the Skrill Premier clash having lost seven of their previous eight league games.
But they were ahead inside five minutes when Marcus Kelly's cross was headed home by James Norwood despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Alan Julian (pictured).
Ryan Hayes delivered an inviting low cross at the other end but Max Cornhill couldn't quite turn it into the net.
Strong winds battered The New Lawn throughout and spoilt the game as a spectacle.
Julian kept the visitors in the contest after the break, making excellent saves to deny Norwood - twice - and Forest Green skipper Jamie Turley.
Dartford applied plenty of late pressure but they couldn't snatch an equaliser.
