Nottingham Forest’s Under 18s twice came from behind to secure a creditable 2-2 draw at Coventry City on Saturday.Goals from Tyler Walker and Kasheme Walton ensured The Reds secured a superb return of seven points from three consecutive away games.
The home side made the early running and went in front after 21 minutes but Forest hit back shortly afterwards.
Walker split the home defence before skidding a 25-yard shot along the greasy surface and into the bottom corner of the net.
Coventry took the lead once more but Walton was introduced on the hour mark to devastating effect.
Two minutes after coming on, he powered through the Coventry defence before rounding the goalkeeper and slotting calmly finish to restore parity.
The draw stretched Forest’s unbeaten run to four matches and interim lead professional development coach Steve Chettle was impressed with his side’s strength of character to fight back and claim a point.
He said: “We’ve had a run of three difficult away games so to take seven points and remain unbeaten is really pleasing.
“The lads showed excellent mental strength to twice come back from a losing position and we’re very happy with a point from a tough encounter.
“Tyler Walker has played in a number of positions in the past few games and has done very well in all of them and Kasheme Walton always seems to make an impact when he comes on to the field, so there are plenty of encouraging signs.”
Scorers: Walker 29', Walton 69'
