Nottingham Forest’s Under 18s recorded their second straight win on Saturday with a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.
Jack Lester’s side travelled to the capital in confident mood following their 5-0 demolition of Watford last weekend and earned a hard-fought victory against the Eagles.
Early goals from Elvis Otim and Ben Brereton were enough to give The Reds all three points as they put their fifth win of the season on the board.
Forest’s next game sees them entertain Cardiff City at the Nigel Doughty Academy this Saturday (3 October, kick-off 12pm).
Forest: Boyd, Diallo, Re (Crookes 53’), Nielsen, Gabriel, Yates, Adams, Edser (Gamblen 75’), Brereton, Otim, Gomis (Wright 53’)
