Report: Nottingham Forest U18s 1-2 Bristol City U18s

Bristol City’s Under-18s march into the FA Youth Cup Fourth Round after coming from behind to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1.

The young Robins fell behind to a Dale Taylor strike from the edge of the area but the visitors soon settled at the City Ground and equalised through a penalty from captain Alex Scott.

Forest were reduced to ten men when Jordan Fankwe received a second yellow card for a late challenge just before the half-hour mark - and City would soon take advantage.

Prince Henry played the role of super sub when he grabbed what would prove to be the winner before half-time. Having replaced the injured Joe Porton early into the game, he found himself through on goal and his shot found its way into the net via Oli Hammond.

Scott went agonisingly close with a free-kick as did Forest’s Aaron Donnelly who clipped the post, while Robins keeper James Walker thwarted the hosts as they pressed high with time running out.

Seb Palmer-Houlden squandered a late chance for City’s third, but it wouldn’t matter as the final whistle followed to confirm City’s place in the fourth round.

City v Forest: Walker, Thuo, Allen, Porton (Henry, 5 – Palmer-Houlden, 80)  Z Bell, Wood, Benarous, Taylor-Clarke, Kadji (Lewis, 74), Scott, Francois. Subs: Smith, Williams, Leeson, Sage.
