Top-of-the-table clash for Under 23s

5 December 2019

Nottingham Forest Under 23s will return to the top of the Professional Development League table if they beat current league leaders Birmingham City on Friday night.

Chris Cohen's side face The Blues at Alfreton Town's Impact Arena on Friday night (kick-off 7pm) and victory would push them back to the top of the division on goal difference.


Forest's unbeaten run in the league currently sits at eight matches and they ran out 6-0 winners at home to Bolton Wanderers in their last league outing on 22 November.

Birmingham are on an excellent run of form themselves and have won their last six consecutive league matches including impressive away victories at Cardiff, Crewe and Sheffield Wednesday.

Admission for Friday night's game is priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions and kick-off is at 7pm.

Directions to the Impact Arena

Leave the M1 at junction 28 and take the A38 towards Derby. After around two miles, leave the A38 and take the B600 towards Alfreton. At the top of the slip road on leaving the A38, turn right along the B600 towards Alfreton town centre.

After around half-a-mile you will see a garage on your right and a church on your left. Turn left just after the church into North Street. The ground is down the bottom of this street on the right. For the away turnstiles then fans should continue past North Street and then take the next third left into Alma Street. The away fans entrance is down on the left just before the park. There is a small car park at the ground in North Street, otherwise there is plenty of street parking.
