Sam Matthews went closest for Crawley as they drew 0-0 against play-off hopefuls Forest Green at The People's Pension Stadium.

The 24-year-old midfielder saw his effort from range hit the crossbar.

Aaron Collins should have opened the scoring for the visitors after 29 minutes when, from Baily Cargill’s through ball, he shot wide and only two minutes later he was guilty of another bad miss by firing wide from 12 yards.

Matthews was denied by the frame of the goal shortly before the break when his dipping 25-yard shot came back off the crossbar.

Jayden Richardson forced Glenn Morris to make a double save moments into the second half and later failed to get a shot away in a good position having been set up by Collins.

Collins had another opportunity when he had a goalbound shot blocked before Jack Powell put the ball wide at the other end after a good Crawley move.

Substitute Kane Wilson put a deflected shot over for Rovers and Tarryn Allarakhia had a header saved for the hosts as the game ended in a stalemate.

The point leaves Crawley 13th in the table as they head into their final two matches of the season.

The Reds are back in action on Saturday as they travel to Stevenage.
