Nottingham Forest's Under 18s were beaten 1-0 by Birmingham City on Saturday.A Lawrence Gorman own goal handed the hosts the narrow advantage in a game played-out in difficult conditions.
Professional Development Coach, Steve Chettle said: "It was a frustrating day because we didn't play how we can play.
"The pitch wasn't great for either side - they did really well to get the game on in the first place - but we didn't get the ball down and pass it as well as we should have done.
"Lawrence unfortunately scored the own goal and the game became stretched after that - we struggled to get a foothold."
