Under 23s in cup action

12 November 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s face an East Midlands derby tonight when they play Leicester City at Holmes Park in their second Premier League Cup game (kick-off 7pm).

The Reds head to Leicester in a buoyant mood after the impressive 4-0 win away at Hull City in the Professional Development League a week ago and will be looking to make it two wins from two in the cup after comfortably defeating Exeter City 3-1 at the Impact Arena last month.

Their opponents ran out 3-0 winners against Norwich City in their first Premier League Cup game last month and will pose a difficult challenge for Jimmy Gilligan's side.

Exeter City drew 1-1 with Norwich City at St James' Park in the other game in the group on Thursday night, meaning a win would see Forest go three points clear at the top of the group.
