Match preview: Under 23s vs Crewe Alexandra

17 December 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s welcome Crewe Alexandra to the Impact Arena on Monday afternoon in their final Professional Development League game of 2018 (kick-off 1pm).

Crewe will pose a tough test however after already beating The Reds 2-1 this season back in October, and they haven't lost since. The Railwaymen remain unbeaten in their last seven games which has seen them climb to fourth in the league table.

The official academy Twitter account will have live updates from the game while a full match report will be available shortly after the final whistle at
