Forest beat Wolves on penalties to reach Carabao Cup semis



Former Wolves defender Willy Boly had given Nottingham Forest a first-half lead

Dean Henderson was the penalty shootout hero as Nottingham Forest overcame Wolves at the City Ground to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1992.

Henderson turned away Ruben Neves’ spot-kick after Jose Sa had denied Sam Surridge, then turned away Joe Hodge’s effort following Forest converting all four of the remaining penalties.

Forest had led in normal time when former Wolves pair Morgan Gibbs-White and Willy Boly combined, with Gibbs-White hanging an excellent first-half corner into the six-yard box and Boly stabbing home from close range.

Wolves scored a superb equaliser when Matheus Cunha’s low cross invited the finish from striker Raul Jimenez.


The game ended with ugly scenes in the centre of the pitch, with stewards involved to pull the players apart as tempers frayed.
