Norwich City have one foot in the FA Youth Cup final after a crucial 1-0 first-leg semifinal win at Nottingham Forest.

A late goal from Reece Hall-Johnson put Norwich firmly in the driving seat entering the home second leg of their FA Youth Cup semi-final with Nottingham Forest.

Following a match of few chances, the midfielder was in the right place and the right time to bundle in an excellent right-wing cross from Cameron Norman and give the Canaries a slender, but crucial, advantage ahead of the return at Carrow Road on Tuesday.

Television replays suggested Hall-Johnson scored with his hand but this wasn't picked up by the referee nor were there vocal appeals from the Forest defenders.
