Morris nets but Development Squad are defeated by strong Forest side at the Impact Arena
Town's U23 side slipped to a 3-1 defeat to a strong Nottingham Forest side last night, played at Alfreton Town's Impact Arena.
Gerard Nash's side fell behind to a Mustapha Carayol strike, but Ben Morris levelled soon after for the Blues. The striker allowed to play for the Development Squad despite being on loan at Woking.
