The winning run came to an end after our Under-23s went down 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at Heritage Park on Friday evening.

Graeme Lee's side were unable to make their second half domination count after the visitors took the lead.

Will Swan put Forest ahead in the opening period and that proved the difference.

Harry Green missed a second half penalty for Boro and Sam Folarin went close to finding an equaliser on a couple of occasions, but with Josh Coburn sidelined through injury, there was no cutting edge to make the difference.

The result was enough to lift Forest above sixth-placed Boro in the PL2 Division 2 table.
