Spurs lose 0-2 to Nottingham



TOTTENHAM Hotspur were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by the Premier League’s bottom-placed side, Nottingham Forest.

  Forest were the better team and took the lead on 50 minutes through a fine curled effort from Renan Lodi.

  An impressive Jesse Lingard headed home following a swift counter-attack to double their lead.

  Spurs manager, Antonio Conte named a strong XI, including Harry Kane, but his side were outplayed at the City Ground.

  Steve Cooper in contrast made nine changes from the side which drew with Brentford in the league on Saturday, but his team played much more flowing football before finding the breakthrough early in the second half.

  Lingard won the ball in midfield, on-loan Atletico Madrid left-back, Lodi charged forward onto it, cut in on his right foot and curled a shot past debutant goalkeeper, Fraser Forster.

  Forest doubled their lead seven minutes later when former Spurs defender, Serge Aurier led a counter-attack down the right wing, with his deep cross headed back across goal by Sam Surridge for Lingard to nod in.

  The home side were made to hang on as Orel Mangala was sent off with 15 minutes remaining after getting a second booking for a clumsy challenge, but they did so to leave Spurs disappointed.
