    Carabao Cup: Wolves pay the penalty as Forest advance to semis

    Dean Henderson was the hero as Nottingham Forest advanced to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup after a 4-3 penalty shoot-out win over Wolves.

    The on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper first kept out Ruben Neves’ penalty, before producing another strong save to keep out Joe Hodge’s spot-kick and send Steve Cooper’s Reds through to the last four.

    Raul Jimenez had come to the visitors’ rescue with a simple tap-in in normal time after ex-Wolves defender Willy Boly – who spent five seasons at Molineux – bundled in a corner from close-range, but they could not find the equaliser they often threatened.

    The victory sees Forest reach the semi-finals for the first time since they finished as runners-up to Manchester United in 1991/92.
