    Luke Steele saved the final penalty from goalscorer Eoghan O’Connell

    Ten-man Nottingham Forest survived a scare from League Two side Bury to progress to the Carabao Cup second round after a penalty shootout.

    Eoghan O’Connell’s early goal gave the Shakers the lead before Forest keeper Jordan Smith was shown a straight red card for a foul on Dominic Telford.

    Matty Cash’s stoppage time strike saved the Championship side from going out.

    After 21 spot kicks at the City Ground, O’Connell missed the decisive penalty to allow Forest to go through.

    Despite making 11 changes, Aitor Karanka’s Championship side were heavy favourites to progress against a side relegated from League One last season.

    But it was the underdogs who took the lead after just two minutes, with defender O’Connell heading in a Jay O’Shea free-kick.

    Karanka’s side, sluggish for most of the game, took 79 minutes to muster their first shot on target, but Cash’s right-footed effort three minutes into stoppage time spared Forest’s blushes.
