Coventry City dominated the first half, beginning with a goal from Maxime Biamou in the 17th minute. However, their lead didn’t last for long, as an equalizer from a Lewis Grabban, 22 minutes in brought Nottingham Forest level, thereby seeing the first half to a 1-1.

The second half started all good for Nottingham Forest, following a goal from Michael Rose in minute 53 to hand victory to the visitors.

For Coventry, Michael Rose, Julien Da Costa, Amadou Bakayoko and Wesley Jobello came on for Sammy Ameobi, Cafu, Lewis Grabban and Filip Krovinovic, while Nottingham replaced Sammy Ameobi, Cafu, Lewis Grabban and Filip Krovinovic for Luke Freeman, Jack Colback, Glenn Murray and Tyler Blackett.
