Nottingham Forest fans have been blown away by Joe Lolley’s recent performance in the EFL Football Manager Cup.
Football Manager has started an online competition between EFL sides, challenging them to take each other on and go all the way to claim the crown.
The most recent fixture involved Nottingham Forest, managed by their very own Lolley, who took on Mansfield. It was an extremely tight affair which went all the way to penalties after a 2-2 deadlock stuck until the end of extra-time. Lolley’s side came out champions after winning 9-8 on penalties but the match wasn’t without its late drama.
Forest were denied three goals during the extra-time period and the virtual Matty Cash sustained an injury, but Lolley and his Reds managed to clinch the win and progress into the quarter-finals.
Fans have responded to Lolley’s victory tweet and have reflected on the events of the game. Here’s some of the best replies:
Unbelievable, Mansfield 3 red cards … Forest 4 goals chalked off … and about 600 penos in the shootout … Lolley marches on
