1 Forest Green groundsman is optmistic about beating the weather

FGR ground (3)Forest Green groundsman Stewart Ward is optimistic Saturday's Skrill Premier clash at home to Salisbury City will beat the weather.

Six- and- three-quarter inches of rainfall has fallen on the New Lawn playing surface in the last fortnight, but Ward expects to see Ady Pennock's side in action.

Rovers' organic ethos is certainly paying off and giving the club a strong chance of staging the game.
