Match preview: Under 23s vs Sheffield United

23 February 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s return to action on Friday night with an important game against Sheffield United.

The Blades currently sit one place and one point above Forest in the Professional Development League table so victory for The Reds will take them above their visitors.

The game takes place at Alfreton Town's Impact Arena and kick-off is at 7pm.

Admission is priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.

Directions to the Impact Arena

By road:

From the M1, turn off at Junction 28 on to the A38 towards Derby. Follow for two miles then take the slip road on to the B600. Turn right at the main road towards the town centre. After half-a-mile, immediately after the Catholic Church on the left, turn left into North Street. The ground is 150 yards down on the right.

By rail:

Leaving the station approach, turn right on Mansfield Road and up the hill towards the town centre. Take the second turn left on to Prospect Street (post office on the left corner, chip shop on the right). Continue for the full length of Prospect Street. At the top, cross Nottingham Road on a light-controlled pedestrian crossing. Facing you is a Roman Catholic church, North Street goes down the right-hand side of the church. 150 yards down, the ground is on your right, set well back. Approximate walking time from the station is 15 minutes.

Match Reports

Under 23s: Forest 0-5 Sheffield United

23 February 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s suffered a disappointing 5-0 defeat against Sheffield United in the Professional Development League on Friday night.

The Reds went behind inside the first minute when Jake Wright nodded past Liam Bossin and the forward added his second on 17 minutes.

Rhys Dorrington-Davies struck from close range to make it 3-0 before the game was put beyod all doubt when Wright scored his third and United's fourth on the half-hour mark.

Five minutes before half-time and it was 5-0 to the visitors as Wright added his fourth of the evening to round off a miserable first 45 minutes.

The Reds attempted to restore some pride in the second half, with Lewis Walters' effort rebounding off the post, but it was a comfortable victory for The Blades.

Forest: Bossin, Gabriel, Preston, Edser (c), Stewart, Ahmedhodzic, Walters (Richardson 84'), Johnson (En-Neyah 46'), Gomis, Smith, Appiah (Charlesworth 46')

Unused subs: Erlandsson, Harbottle
