Nottingham Forest’s Under 21s were beaten by a second-half goal at home to Sheffield United on Monday afternoon.
Jimmy Gilligan named a young side to face the Blades with the likes of Jordan Gabriel, Liam Adams and Kyle McClean all involved.
Tyler Walker had Forest’s best chance of the first half but his effort was well saved by the Sheffield United goalkeeper following good build-up play from Adams.
But it was the visitors who took all three points as Harrison McGahey stabbed the ball home from close range after Forest had struggled to clear a free-kick.
Forest’s Under 21s are next in action when they travel to Leeds United on Monday (15 February, kick-off 1pm).
Forest: Evtimov, Gabriel, Karo, Iacovitti, Kelly, Adams (McClean 66’), Crookes, Yates (Austin 53’), Wood, Walker, Thorne
