Nottingham Forest’s Under 21s enjoyed a winning end to their league campaign with a 4-2 victory at Hull City.The Reds came from 2-0 down to win 4-2 in East Yorkshire, Kasheme Walton (2), Oliver Burke and Virgil Gomis on the scoresheet.
And Jake Wigley was pleased with the team’s performance, especially in the second half.
He said: “It was a pleasing way to end the season and a good result in the end.
“We didn’t really get going in the first half but after we had a few words with the players at half-time they were a lot better.”
Wigley was delighted that a number of Under 21s group were able to pick up Football League experience this season.
He said: “It was good to get the likes of Joe Worrall, Matty Cash and Josh Rees some valuable football league experience.
“Their absence gave the opportunity for some younger players to step up, which has been good for them.
“Results-wise it’s been a little bit inconsistent but that’s probably because we had a very young team, especially towards the end. We had some good performances but some results just didn’t go our way.
“Looking ahead to next season, hopefully a few of our players can continue their work with the first team and, with a strong Under 18s group underneath us, hopefully they can push on.”
