Gary Brazil hopes Nottingham Forest fans will back Reds in FA Youth Cup action tonight
GARY Brazil hopes fans will turn out to support Nottingham Forest's next generation of talent when they take on Bolton in the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup tonight.
The Reds face Wanderers at the City Ground (7pm) hoping to take a step further than they did last season, when they were unluckily beaten by Premier League giants Chelsea.
And Brazil hopes the young squad, which includes Jack Blake – who has appeared on the bench for the first team this season – will be well supported on home turf.
"Of course it would be great if a few people came along to support these lads," said Brazil, the interim academy manager.

"They have done tremendously well this season and it is a great achievement for them to get this far in the competition.
"It is an interesting test for players when they find themselves playing in front of a crowd, but it is a positive experience and we have a tight group of players. They are a good bunch and they have backed each other all season."
Brazil warns Forest will face a tough test against a Bolton side that hammered Spurs 8-4 in the previous round.
"Our lads are well up for it," he said. "But it's probably the first game we have gone into as underdogs. We are going to have our work cut out."
Entry to the game is £3 for adults and £1 concessions.
