Jamie Paterson and Andy Reid featured for the Under 21s at The City Ground this afternoon.
Paterson played the full match while Reid continued his recovery from injury by playing 75 minutes.
They were joined in the line-up by trialist Paul Taylor but the trio were unable to prevent Forest from falling to a 2-1 defeat against Coventry City.
Kasheme Walton scored Forest’s goal on the stroke of full time after Lateef Elford-Alliyu and George Thomas found the net for the visitors.
Paterson and Taylor were central to much of Forest’s attacking play, while captain Jorge Grant, winger Oliver Burke and striker James Thorne also had opportunities to score.
But Forest had to settle for Walton’s consolation, the substitute controlling the ball well in the area before placing it beyond the Coventry keeper as the match entered second-half injury time.
