Following the 3-2 defeat to Peterborough United at the weekend, Danny Cowley’s Lincoln City look to respond as they host a young Nottingham Forest side at Sincil Bank.
The young XI replace Oxford United, who cancelled at short notice due to their hectic pre-season schedule, as well as the recent appointment of Pep Clotet as manager
Managed by Gary Brazil and Jack Lester, the young side pose a threat to The Imps, with several emerging talents set to start, including Tyler Walker, the son of England legend Des Walker.
I talk to Nottingham Forest fan Max Hayes, who you may know from his popular series on YouTube Matchday With Max. He gives us his expert knowledge on the Forest side, and any exciting talents we can expect to see.
Q: I’m sure as a Forest fan you know the squad inside out. Are their any emerging talents we can expect to see start on Tuesday?
A: Yes there’s quite a few! Toby Edser has come through the youth development he’s a fantastic promising young midfielder who has great potential. Also Tyler Walker the son of England & Forest legend Des Walker.
Q: Despite the XI travelling up to Sincil Bank only being the U23’s, can we still expect a stern test?
A: You can expect a difficult test. They are put through their paces.
Q: One of Forest’s most exciting players to come out the academy recently, Ben Brereton, who had an incredible season winning the U19 World Cup could potentially travel to Sincil Bank. Do you expect him to or is he being looked at by the first team?
A: He could do, but I highly doubt it due to first team as the first team play Gerona FC on Tuesday night & Ben is a first team player.
Q: With the likes of Ollie Burke and Ben Brereton who have progressed through the academy, could we see anyone on Tuesday go onto do as well?
A: Yes like my first question. Tyler Walker, Toby Edser & Andreas Biuchalakis a young Greek player on trial from Olympiacos.
