Nottingham Forest put in a terrible display on Tuesday night as Burton Albion defeated the Championship side 3-2 to progress to the Quarter-Final of the Carabao Cup.

Manager Aitor Karanka was left “angry and embarrassed” by his side’s defeat to League One strugglers Burton Albion – and the club’s fans are not happy either. Few players put in good performances as Karanka made 10 changes to Saturday’s side against Leeds United, and it didn’t pay off.

Scott Fraser’s effort was heavily deflected off defender Saidy Janko, before the Scotsman doubled The Brewers’ lead just over ten minutes later. Substitute Lewis Grabban pulled one back to make it 2-1, before on loan midfielder Jake Hesketh smashed in a volley to restore Burton’s 3-1 lead. Youngster Arvin Appiah brought the lead back to just one goal in stoppage time, but Nigel Clough’s side held on to win 3-2.
