Under 18s match preview: Blackburn vs Forest

6 February 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 18s will be looking to book their place in the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals tonight as they travel to Ewood Park to take on Blackburn Rovers (kick-off 7pm).

The young Reds dramatically knocked out East Midlands rivals Leicester City on penalties at The City Ground in the previous round despite being reduced to ten men from the 21st minute.

If they can overcome the test posed by Rovers tonight then Forest will welcome Blackpool to The City Ground in the quarter-finals, and they do have both Riley Harbottle and Jayden Richardson back in contention after recent suspensions.

The young Blackburn side will provide a stern test for The Reds after knocking out Wrexham, Stoke City and Watford all at Ewood Park earlier in the competition as well as an away win at Tranmere Rovers in the first round.
