Nottingham Forest’s Under 18s kept their six-point lead at the top of the table with a convincing 3-1 home win over Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.Ben Brereton scored his 17th and 18th goals of the campaign as Forest recovered from going a goal behind before Virgil Gomis sealed the win with 12 minutes to play.
The visitors took the lead as Enock Likoy-Elumba headed home a cross from Ryan White but Brereton soon levelled with only 20 minutes on the clock.
And it was second-half goals from Brereton and Gomis that secured all three points as Jack Lester’s side recorded their fourth win in a row.
Lester was full of praise for his team after the game and said: "The players' desire to work extremely hard is impressive. They are a special group."
The Under 18s are next in action when they make the trip to Huddersfield Town on Saturday (5 December, kick-off 11.30am).
Forest: Boyd, Otim, Gamblen, Jemson, Iacovitti (Taylor 1'), Yates, Adams, Edser, Brereton, Hayes, Gomis (A.Wright 78')
