Match preview: Under 23s vs Barnsley

24 September 2018

Nottingham Forest Under 23s are hoping to make it three home wins on the spin this evening when they face Barnsley at Alfreton Town.

The Reds performed well in their last league outing away at Sheffield United but were unfortunate to spurn a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw up at Stocksbridge.

A win for Jimmy Gilligan's side this evening could move them up to as high as second spot in the Professional Development League table and Forest fans are encouraged to attend and support the players if they can.

Admission prices are £4 for adults £2 for concessions and kick-off is at 7pm.

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