MATCHDAY LIVE: Nottm Forest Youth v Wanderers Youth
This live event has finished
It's over and it's heartbreak for the young Whites but they have done the club proud in this cup run and have nothing to be ashamed of at all.
That's it from me...sorry it wasn't better news at the end
Corner to the Whites...but it's easy for Smith to gather
Final sub for Wanderers as Saul Hamer replaces Hendrie
Youngs tries a shot from 20 yards but it is straight above Smith's head and he grasps it comfortably
There's noi sign of any white flag from Wanderers who keep trying to muster an opening
Sub for the young Whites for the second half and it is Elliot Newby on for Thomas Walker.
Whites get a corner as the half comes to an end but it is headed over...just 15 minutes to save this now
@davidpyeBN Cheers Dave! Let's hope we get the result before then! #BWFC— @Angles2 27 February 2013

500 yards away ?
I'm 6,000 miles away and would have given anything to be there.....get your butt over there and shout them on for the win....
The home side are ahead for the first time and it's supersub Palmer-Samuels again who has the easy task of tapping in from close-range after Elliott crosses low from the left edge of the box ...2-3
@davidpyeBN If it goes to pens can you still get in at The City Ground? I live 500 yards away!!— @Angles2 27 February 2013
No chances of note as yet...both sides wary of one mistake costing them dear now
We are underway with 30 minutes of extra-time
That's the final action as the whistle goes and it is extra-time
As the clock ticks past the three added minutes, a corner from Forest is headed down and Sievers saves superbly on his line before Jordan Hendrie clears the loose ball off the line
In stoppage time and it's a free-kick to the Whites midway into the Forest half but it's headed clear
We are into the last minute now and Sievers makes a smart save from Otim's strong shot before watching Morgan Ferrier fire over
Lester is having a fine game and links up with Youngs well again to get in down the right but he cannot find Clough with his cross.
Forest supersub Palmer-Samuels goes close to latching onto a left-wing cross and netting another but, thankfully for the Whites, it is beyond him.
Looking like we could be in for extra-time here with 10 minutes to go...unless??
And it's the substitute who nets the leveller with his first touch as he cuts onto his left foot inside the box to fire home low...2-2
Second change for Forest..Jordan Palmer-Samuels on for Gnahore
It's there for Wanderers and it's an own goal from the unlucky Fenton as he slides to intercept a Lester cross from the right but can only divert it in from six yards..2-1
Sub for Wanderers as Kieran Nolan replaces Sam Bailey
A typically mazy run by Youngs sees him past several Forest men and into the box from the left but his shot is blocked
Great defending by Niall Maher blocks the effort after it beats the wall
Blake again is a menace and wins a free-kick right on the edge of the Whites' box...
It may not be the swashbuckling style of the Spurs win but Wanderers are defending stoutly
First sub for Forest..Danny Elliott on for Josh Thomas
Almost a lovely intehange between Youngs and Clough as the latter backheels a return pass but it's cut out
More great work by Lester on the right as he battles to get a cross in but it is just too high for Clough who cannot get above it with his header
Blake has the Whites back-pedalling as his defected shot goes just wide...at the other end a flowing move from the Whites down the right almost leads to a chance for Thomas Walker but a fine tckle from Fenton denies him 12 yards out
8:03pm Wed 27 Feb 13
Los Angeles Whites checking in
Bet it's a bit warmer in LA??

@davidpyeBN Are there replays in the FA Youth Cup or does it go straight to extra time/penalties?— @Daggers87 27 February 2013
I'm back and so are the teams as the second half gets going at a chilly City Ground
@davidpyeBN good job so far mate. Just don't go catching pneumonia... you've got a presser tomorrow!— @MarcIles 27 February 2013
The last action of the half sees Forest's Wilfried Gnahore fire a free-kick onto the top of the netting. Half-time and it's 1-1. Back soon.
Good defending by the Whites to clear a Blake free-kick into the box then block a second shot from Kieran Wallace
The game has hit a bit of a lull but it's still anyone's as we approach half time.
Sievers makes a simple save as Forest skipper Kieran Fenton heads traight at him from a corner
Wanderers need to try and shackle Blake...he is behind every good move for Forest and conducting the midfield for them
Forest go close again and it was Jack Blake, who set up the goal, who fizzes a daisy-cutter just wide of the upright
Just spotted ex-Whites man Julian Darby sat near to his boss Billy Davies...wonder if the man who recently worked with the Wanderers academy has been a spy in the camp for the hosts??
Now it's the Whites' turn to hit the woodwork as a good advantage after a foul on Youngs lets Lester in on the right but his angled effort smashes against the near post and out to safety for the Reds
Wanderers need to regain their composure... they are battling well but on the back foot at present
It's nearly 2-1 to Forest but Lawrence Gorman's rasper from 20 yards cannons off the top of the Wanderers bar and behind..phew!
The home side are looking confident after their goal and why not...this is their fourth home tie in succession in this year's FA Youth Cup and they have won the previous three against Cardiff, Rochdale and Huddersfield
Forest right-back Michael Hollingsworth gets a talking to from referee Steve Martin - no not that one - after a late challenge on Liam Gibson...you could say he was a bit of a dirty rotten scoundrel on this occasion!
It's 1-1 after striker Derrick Otim shows quick feet in the box to get a left-foot shot away and past Jan-Ole Sievers...harsh on the Whites to be hauled level
What a great chance for two but Chris Lester's shot rolls agonisingly wide after home stopper Jordan Smith raced out and was beaten to it by the Whites winger...must mntion wht a superb pass from Sam Bailey to find Lester
I suppose it was fitting that a player named Clough lit up the City Ground with a stunning goal...not so pleasing for Brian's former fans mind you!!
Forest are doing their best to get in the game but Wanderers are too slick and only a last-ditch clearance stops a low cross reaching Tom Youngs
@davidpyeBN we're depending on you for ALL the information! #coywm— @loftylion9 27 February 2013

Just like the first-team, an early goal was just what was needed to settle the young Whites down
The young Whites are at it again as Zach Clough sends an unstoppable piledriver into the top corner with less than 2 minutes gone...1-0
We are underway...a reminder this tie will be settled tonight with penalties a possibility..
The winners will face either Everton or Norwich
Nearly time for kick-off though not as impressive a crowd as I thought would be here...maybe the Forest faithful have heard all about the Wanderers eight-shooters from Spurs!
