Tyler Walker showed yet again why he is so highly rated, as he scored twice for the Nottingham Forest Under-21 side on Monday.
The 18-year-old forward’s brace saw the Reds’ youth team get the better of their Bristol City counterparts 3-0 at the City Ground.
Walker opened the scoring for Forest as early as the third minute, bursting through the City defence before finishing beyond goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott.
The teenager doubled the home team’s advantage on 12 minutes when he fired the ball high into the net at the back post.
The youngster was involved in Forest’s third goal of the match, passing the ball to Stephen McLaughlin to drive home with his left foot into the bottom-right corner in the 88th minute.
Walker has recently been introduced to the Forest first team and has made two substitute appearances in the Championship.
The youngster has a bright future, and following his heroics against City, Forest fans took to social networking site Twitter to rave about him.

We should just keep Walker's involvement to cameo appearances for now. Inevitably some will pin all our hopes and dreams on the boy. #nffc— 'Bala' (@DizzyBala) March 23, 2015
#nffc what have we got to lose by giving Walker a chance, look how Osbourne has developed from this time last year. Come on Dougie!!!— Steve Patching (@stevepatching) March 23, 2015
Ok Forest fans, will we make the playoffs?? I think not, so would it be worth giving young Walker a few games experience? #nffc— Leroy (@KiwiCarlisle) March 23, 2015
