FA Youth Cup match pack: Birmingham (H)

21 January 2016

Nottingham Forest will be hoping to progress through to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup this evening when they entertain Birmingham City at The City Ground (kick-off 7pm).

Having beaten Brighton and Hove Albion on penalties in the previous round, Jack Lester's side now know that a win this evening will seal a place in the last 16 and another home tie against either Liverpool or Cardiff City.

Season ticket holders can gain free entry to tonight's FA Youth Cup game on production of their season ticket book at the Peter Taylor Stand turnstiles.

Recent form

Since their penalty shootout win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the third round, Nottingham Forest have won both of their league matches, a 2-1 victory at Leeds United and a thumping 6-2 success at Coventry City.

The Reds were due to meet tonight's opponents Birmingham City in a scheduled league fixture on Saturday but the game was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Birmingham enjoyed a thrilling 3-2 win at Southampton in the third round and their 3-1 victory over Barnsley before Christmas stretched their impressive recent run to seven wins in eight matches.

The two sides met earlier in the season with Forest running out 3-1 winners in the league thanks to a brace from Ben Brereton and a goal from Ryan Yates. 

The FA Youth Cup so far

Nottingham Forest play their fourth-round game this evening and they will be aiming to join the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Norwich City in the last 16.

The fourth round has already seen a couple of shocks take place with AFC Wimbledon winning 2-1 at Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic knocked out Derby County courtesy of a 1-0 victory.
