Posted by

Even the most fervent of Nottingham Forest supporters surely wouldn’t have predicted what would’ve occurred against Leicester City in the first 32 minutes of their FA Cup tie.

The Championship side had proved their credentials in the last round when they had knocked out a strong Arsenal side, with their reward another home clash against Premier League opposition.

Not that you’d have known which team was from the English top-flight and which was from the second-tier.

Some terrible marking from Brendan Rodgers’ side saw Philip Zinckernagel put the hosts into the lead on 23, and within a minute Brennan Johnson had doubled the lead.

Incredibly, returning captain, Joe Worrall, made it 3-0 with just 32 minutes on the clock to send the City Ground into ecstasy.
