​Nottingham Forest secure penalty shootout win over Bury

Nottingham Forest squeezed in to Carabao Cup second round after a thrilling penalty shootout win against Bury.

A 1-1 draw after 90 minutes sent the game into a long penalty shootout with Forest coming on top 10-9.

Goalkeeper Luke Steel was the unexpected hero for the Reds as he stepped in from the bench to replace dismissed Jordan Smith in the 33rd minute and eventually saved two penalties in the shootout.

Bury could smell a big victory when Matty Cash scored a stoppage time equaliser to send the game to penalties.

But the visitors' defender, Eoghan O'Connell, who opened the scoring already in 2nd minute, was left with a bitter taste as he missed the crucial penalty.
