Under 18s: Forest 3-2 Huddersfield

27 November 2016

Nottingham Forest Under 18s got back on the winning trail on Saturday afternoon as they edged out Huddersfield Town by three goals to two at The Nigel Doughty Academy.

A quick-fire brace from Virgil Gomis had Forest two goals in front shortly before the half-hour mark but the visitors responded well and halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time through Cedwyn Scott.

The Reds restored their two-goal advantage in the second half as Luke McCormick beat Owen Brooke in the Huddersfield goal and despite Olly Dyson's late effort for The Terriers, Forest held on to claim an important three points.

Head coach Gareth Holmes was pleased by the level of his side's performance but believes they could have displayed more of a cutting edge which would have made the result more comfortable.

He said: "It was a good performance. We controlled the game for long spells and enjoyed some good periods of possession. The only disappointing thing is that we could have been more ruthless in front of goal and made life easier for ourselves.

"It is a pleasing result for us against a strong Huddersfield side though and it is something we can build on ahead of the FA Youth Cup game against Ipswich next week." 

The Under 18s' fixtures and league table can be found on the academy section of the official Nottingham Forest website.
