Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Ben Brereton brace

The City Ground general view before clash with Hull

The 17-year-old has been in fine form for the Nottingham Forest under-23s.

Nottingham Forest’s under-23s were in fine form yesterday as they got the better of Crewe Alexandra in a 4-0 triumph.

He scored two goals in the game which took his tally to the season so far to 11.

The 17-year-old has certainly been in great form so far this season and is looking like a real prospect for the future at the City Ground.

It is possibly a wise move to keep the teenage striker in the youth set-up for the time being.
