Match preview: Leeds vs Under 18s

16 February 2019

Nottingham Forest Under 18s travel to Thorp Arch training ground on Saturday morning to take on Leeds United in a top-of-the-table clash in the Professional Development League (kick-off 11am).

The Reds are in third place while their opponents are currently sat in a second, with both sides vying to knock Sheffield Wednesday off top spot, who Forest drew 1-1 with last weekend.

A win for Gareth Holmes’s side would see them move to the top of the league should The Owls drop points, with seven games remaining after tomorrow’s fixture.

Forest ran out 2-1 winners against The Whites back in September and will be hoping to secure the double over them tomorrow.

Match Reports

Under 18s: Leeds 1-1 Forest

18 February 2019

A Will Swan strike secured a point for Nottingham Forest Under 18s as they drew 1-1 at Leeds United in the Professional Development League.

Niklas Haugland fired the hosts in-front in the first-half but Swan’s leveller after the break meant it finished level at Thorp Arch.

The Reds had a good chance to take the lead early on when some good work from Fin Back played through Gabriel Ogunseri, but the forward’s shot was blocked by the Leeds ‘keeper.

But it was the home side who took the lead on 22 minutes through Niklas Haugland when the Leeds man fired home after a good run inside the box. Ogunseri nearly responded for The Reds however after some neat play with Keith Asare, but the striker couldn’t get his shot away.

Asare then went close himself as he curled a shot inches over the crossbar as they went into the break a goal down.

Forest started the second half well and that showed when Swan grabbed an equaliser for his side. The youngster was played through on goal and coolly slotted it past Harrison Male in the Leeds net.

Swan then had a huge chance to edge The Reds into the lead on 64 minutes. Alex Gibson-Hammond’s initial shot was well saved before Swan pounced on the rebound, but he put it wide of the target.

Leeds then had a couple of chances of their own and could have won it at the end as Michael Statham made an excellent save to deny Henri Kumwenda, but the game finished level with The Reds bringing a point back to Nottingham.

Forest: Statham, Bello, Boland, Mutoti, Spooner, Hammond (Trialist 86'), Back, Gibson-Hammond, Asare, Swan, Ogunseri

Subs not used: Liburd-Hines, Perkins, Solomon, Durose
