United keeper Vitek was at fault when he saw the ball slip through his hands after pressure from the visitors bore fruit with the game placed at 1-1 during the halftime break.
While Forest continued to pile pressure with some proper display in the second half, Garnacho who was pressing high up was fouled outside the box but the referee pointed to the spot with the Argentine making no mistake from 12 yards.

It was the player again who ensured the trophy was home with a brilliant solo effort that ricocheted off a Forest defender and into the net for United’s third goal.
