The young Terriers go into tomorrow’s match unbeaten in their last four league games, winning three of them - including a 7-0 victory over Hull City.
Town’s Under-18s currently sit seventh in the PDL2 after accumulating 22 points from 14 games, whilst opponents Nottingham Forest sit top of the table with 34 points from 16 games.
Forest’s Under-18 side is led by the Club’s former striker Jack Lester.
The two sides met earlier this season, but Town were defeated 4-2 away at the league leaders. Despite second half goals from Jack Boyle and Rekeil Pyke, the young Terriers had left themselves too much to do after conceding three goals in the first half.
