Jonny Williams, Tyler Walker and Jorge Grant were on the scoresheet and Robert Tesche played an hour as Nottingham Forest’s Under 21s beat Bolton 5-1 this afternoon.
The Reds had to come from behind after conceding an early penalty, but after Antreas Karo levelled for the hosts it was one-way traffic.
Grant scored with a header to make it 2-1 in the first half before Walker gave his side some breathing space with a neat finish after the break.
Karo made it four with his second of the match before Williams completed the rout with an excellent finish from just outside the area.
Tesche was an assured presence in midfield before being substituted with 30 minutes to play.
Forest: Evtimov; Rees, Karo, Worrall, Kelly; O Burke (Petravicius), Tesche (Cash), Grant, Thorne (Thomas), Williams; Walker
