Match preview: Under 23s vs Exeter City

7 October 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s will be aiming to return to winning ways this afternoon when they welcome Exeter City to the Impact Arena in their first Premier League Cup game (kick-off 2pm).

The Reds slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Leeds United on Monday in the Professional Development League which also saw their six-match unbeaten run come to an end, but now they turn their attentions to the cup against The Grecians.

Exeter booked a place in the Premier League Cup group stage with a 1-0 win away at Bristol Rovers and they will provide a tough test for The Reds after making the round of 16 in this competition last season, losing to Wolves on penalties.

In the other game in Group D, Leicester City beat Norwich City 3-0 on Friday night.

Admission prices for today's game are £4 for adults, £2 for concessions.

There will be live updates via the Nottingham Forest Academy Twitter account and a match report at the full-time whistle at
