Under 23s: Burnley 3-2 Forest

8 March 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s nearly staged a late comeback but ultimately fell short as they lost 3-2 against Burnley last night.

The home side took the lead on 10 minutes as a lucky ricochet inside the Forest penalty area saw the ball land to Tunde Bayode who converted.

Isaac Hutchinson pulled The Reds level just before the half-hour mark as he flicked home a corner but Burnley retook the lead just after half-time as Christian N'Guessan volleyed past Liam Bossin.

James Clarke's header with 20 minutes to go gave Burnley a two-goal cushion and it was a lead that eventually proved to be too much for Gareth Holmes' side as, despite Jordan Gabriel's goal in injury time, they left Lancashire with nothing.

Forest: Bossin, Coveney (Gomis 46'), Preston, Ahmedhodzic, Stewart, Iacovitti, Charlesworth, Otim (Smith 75') Gabriel, Appiah, Hutchinson (Johnson 75')

Unused subs: Richardson, Soloha

Goals: Hutchinson 26', Gabriel 90'

Bookings: Gabriel 81'
