Nottingham Forest’s Under 21s succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at Huddersfield this afternoon.An excellent late strike by defender Kieron Fenton proved to be a mere consolation as the visitors paid the price for a sloppy display.
Karl Darlow, Robbie Findley, James Coppinger and Guy Moussi were all handed run-outs in West Yorkshire.
Academy director Nick Marshall said: “A combination of very poor defending and sloppy play cost us the game.
“We actually went on to dominate possession, particularly in the second half when we did play some good stuff. Despite this, we didn’t create enough chances, we continued to be sloppy and we were still naïve defensively.”
Team: Karl Darlow, David Papworth, Jack Andrews (James Coppinger), Jack Blake, Kieron Fenton, Matt Regan, Kieran Wallace, Guy Moussi (Wilfried Gnahore), Robbie Findley (Derrick Otim), Morgan Ferrier, Ben Osborn
