U23s: Nottingham Forest preview

Bolton Wanderers Under-23s take on Nottingham Forest in the Professional Development League Play-Off Final at the City Ground on Friday night.

Goals from Jeff King, Dennis Politic and Liam Edwards saw the young Whites see of Charlton Athletic in their play-off semi-final on Tuesday to progress to the final, having finished their regular season top of the northern section.

David Lee's side clinched top spot with 51 points from their 30 league outings, having won 16 games, drawn three and lost 11 as they finished a point ahead of second-placed Nottingham Forest.

Forest reached the final after beating Crystal Palace 1-0 AET at Selhurst Park, with the Tricky Trees previously winning 13 games, drawing 11 and losing six of their regualr season outings.

Bolton lost 3-1 at Macron Stadium when the two sides clashed at Macron Stadium back in October before fighting out a 0-0 draw in the return fixture.

Kicking off at 7pm at the City Ground, admission will cost £4 for adults and £1 for concessions.
