The Whites’ Premier League 2 outing saw them defeat Newcastle United’s youngsters at Thorp Arch at the beginning of November. Michael Skubala’s side remain six points clear atop PL2 Division 2 but will need to retain top spot if they are to earn automatic promotion back to the top flight.

This evening’s opponents were beaten 5-1 at Thorp Arch back in the summer, but on home turf, a stone’s throw from the City Ground on the other side of the River Trent, Forest’s Under-21s may be an altogether different proposition.

Live match updates, team news, analysis, build-up and post-match reaction here throughout the evening. Kick-off at Meadow Lane is from 7pm.

Nottingham Forest U21 1-0 Leeds United U21 LIVE: Match updates from Meadow Lane

70’ Mullen strikes inside the area and his shot cannons down off the crossbar. The referee waits a second, then blows his whistle and points towards Leeds’ half as if to suggest it had crossed the line. Instead, he awards a Forest free-kick for a handball AFTER the ball had bounced down and out.

67’ Leo Hjelde wearing the armband since Joseph was subbed

65’ Nadin on for Gardner

61’ Another good chance for Leeds. Joseph plays in Perkins, who has been a little off-colour today, and rifles one at Shelvey in the Forest net. Good low save by the ‘keeper.

58’ A minute later and another nutmeg, it looks like. Speeds away, going one-v-one, shoots and forces a good save from the ‘keeper at close range. He is in the MOOD.

57’ Mateo Joseph with the cheekiest of nutmegs at the byline, inside Forest's penalty area. Sends one across into the box but home side stab clear. Ay, ay, ay!

55’ Forest set-piece on the edge of the penalty area, close to the byline. Opportunity.

51’ Allen shoots from range after Forest give it up. Blocked. Please, just one on target. Either team.
