Review
We are back in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup after a wonderful away win at Blackburn. They were totally outclassed and we deserved to score even more than the four we did! Brennan Johnson opened the scoring with a penalty after 13 minutes, but we let them back into the game with a goal just before half-time. No worries though as Jesse Lingaard put us back in front with a twice-deflected free kick before Taiwo Awonyi and then Johnson scored again to wrap it for the 6,576 Forest fans that made the trip.
