Nottingham Forest's Under 18s cruised to their second straight win with a comfortable 5-1 victory at Colchester United on Saturday afternoon.
Kevin MacDonald's side opened the scoring on the half-hour mark through Luke Thomas before trialist Matthew Cash doubled The Reds' advantage four minutes before half-time.
The second half saw a determined display from Forest lead to three further goals from Thomas, Aidan Austin and Ryan Yates and despite a consolation strike from the home side, MacDonald's boys recorded a superb away victory in Essex.
Forest: Boyd, Diallo, Kelly, Crookes, Worrall, Arrowsmith, Otim, Cash (Gamblen 88'), Thomas (Iacovitti 83'), Yates, Austin (Adams 77')
