Boro test for Under 23s

2 October 2017

Nottingham Forest Under 23s turn their attention to the Premier League Cup tonight when they take on Middlesbrough.

The Reds begin life without Jack Lester after he joined Chesterfield as first-team manager, with Boro visiting Alfreton Town's Impact Arena for the first group-stage game of the competition.

Forest will be looking to get back to winning ways after two defeats in a row against Ipswich Town and Birmingham City but will face a stern test from the Premier League 2 side.

Kick-off is at 7pm and tickets are available on arrival, priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.
