Date set for FA Youth Cup tie

5 December 2019

The date for Nottingham Forest’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Youth Cup has been confirmed and the tie will be played on Friday 13th December (kick-off 7pm).

Forest's Under 18s travel to The New Bucks Head Stadium, the home of National League North outfit AFC Telford United, for the third-round clash.

The full address for the ground is: New Bucks Head Stadium, Watling Street, Wellington, Telford, TF1 2TU.

Gareth Holmes' side currently sit third in the Professional Development League, having won seven and drawn three of their 15 league matches so far this season. Last time out they were held to a 1-1 draw away to Burnley, who sit a place below Forest.

They will face a Wolves Under 18s side who ply their trade in Premier League Under 18 division, and occupy fifth spot on 17 points from 11 games. Their last fixture saw them claim a 2-0 away win against Newcastle United, having been thrashed 5-0 by Derby County the week before.

Forest will be hoping for a positive performance against higher-ranked opposition next Friday, with the exciting prospect of a cup run a potential possibility.
