UNDER 23 DEV LEAGUE @ THE IMPACT ARENA
13 JANUARY 2017 --- 7PM
|ATTEMPTED ARTISTIC SCENE AT THE IMPACT ARENA|
Leeds United looked to force a comeback in this game similar to Sunderland's last night at Derby but Forest just about had enough to hold them out by the time the 90 minutes was over.
Once again the tale of a bitterly cold night this was probably the coldest of the season so far for watching football in and I did give this serious consideration but it was a good chance to get along to Alfreton a ground of course covered many times before so here is just a small insight into the night.
A simple bus journey to The Impact and a quick catch up with a few mates at the ground and as per last night a crowd of around 150 saw Forest lead 2-0 nil at half time. Forrest had took the lead as early as 15 seconds one of the quickest the blog as seen never mind this season when Jorge Grant put in Lewis Walters who finished well. The second was a quality finish with power from Gerry McDonagh who fires home from 14 yards.
The second half started encouragingly for Leeds with a goal back on 57 minutes with another good strike this time from 25 yards from Tom Pearce but even with a continued amount of pressure and a late free kick in time added on Forest saw time out for the win.
Three games in 3 days and the increasing risk of hyperthermia had brought home the full extent of winter football!
