Nottingham Forest Res 2 Denaby United 0
Nottingham Forest Reserves beat Denaby United 2-0 on the latter’s ground yesterday afternoon, before about 1,000 spectators.
The Forest were the better team, their forwards being clever and quick on the ball, and but for weak finishing would have scored more frequently.
Denaby disputed the issue, but could make no impression on the Forest defence.
Wroe scored before the interval, and Townsend added another goal in the second half.
