FA Youth Cup preview: Manchester City vs Forest

17 January 2019

Nottingham Forest Under 18s face a huge test against Manchester City at the Manchester City Academy Stadium in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday evening (kick-off 7pm).

Gareth Holmes's side slipped to their first defeat in five matches on Saturday as they were beaten 1-0 by Birmingham City at the Forest Academy in the Professional Development League, but they will be hoping to bounce back against The Citizens.

The Reds comfortably defeated Maidenhead United 5-1 in the last round of the competition while their opponents this time secured a 4-0 win over Clevedon Town.

The winner of the tie will face a trip to Derby County in the next round after they secured their place in the next round after a convincing 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Pride Park.

Tickets for the game are priced at £3 for adults and 18-21-year-olds and £1 for Over 65s and Under 1
