Under 21s: Forest 3-1 Birmingham

23 February 2016

Tyler Walker was on the scoresheet as Nottingham Forest’s Under 21s beat Birmingham 3-1 at The City Ground yesterday.

The striker doubled the lead shortly after half-time following an excellent 21st-minute opener from Deimantas Petravicius.

The Blues pulled a goal back through Kyle McFarlane but Forest’s James Thorne wrapped the game up with an excellent free-kick.

Under 21s assistant coach Jake Wigley said: “We scored three excellent goals – three of the best we’ve scored this season - and were a lot more patient and composed in possession, which we worked on in the week. That was our game plan.

“It was a good game. At the beginning of the second half we lost our way a little bit. They came at us with a bit more pressure and scored a goal to make it 2-1.

“But James Thorne put a free-kick in the top corner and we controlled the game from that point onwards.”

Forest: Durrant, Gabriel, Gamblen (Cash 60'), Crookes, Nielsen, Iacovitti, Petravicius, Trialist (Brereton 72'), Walker (c), Thorne, Thomas (Yates 72')
