Steve Chettle’s Under 18s suffered their first defeat of the season at home to Birmingham on Saturday.
In a display Academy Director Nick Marshall described as ‘disappointing all round’, The Reds went down 1-0 to a first half goal.
Marshall said: “Although the result was disappointing, more so was the performance.
“We did, however, continue our policy of blooding youngsters by handing Under 18s debuts to Tyler Walker and Ryan Yates- so there were some positives to take out of the game.
“We’ll be looking for big improvements in the coming weeks.”
Forest Under 18s: Smith, Sebastino, Kamaneno, Hollingsworth, Gordon, Ackroyd, Petravicius, Gnahore, Otim, Walker (Mulraney), Thomas (Yates)
