Four on the bounce for Under 18s

12 October 2015

Nottingham Forest’s Under 18s secured their fourth successive victory on Saturday with a 3-1 win at Birmingham City.

Ryan Yates fired Forest into an eighth-minute lead in the West Midlands as he beat the goalkeeper from the edge of the area before Ben Brereton doubled the lead three minutes later as he headed home a right-wing free-kick.

The Reds had made a rapid start and Brereton extended the advantage on 28 minutes as he finished off a flowing move to put Jack Lester’s side in complete control.

Birmingham did find a consolation goal four minutes from time as David Popa slotted past Joe Boyd but it wasn’t enough to take the shine off an impressive away win for Forest.

A home game against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday (17 October, kick-off 11am) will give Forest the opportunity to make it five straight wins as they look to make further progress up the league table.

Forest: Boyd, Otim, Crookes, Nielsen, Gabriel, Yates, Adams, Edser (Appiah 83’), McDonagh, Brereton, Gomis (Gamblen 75’)
