Nottingham stun Sheffield United on penalties to book Championship play-off final

Nottingham Forest will face Huddersfield Town at Wembley Stadium for a place in the Premier League after beating Sheffield United in the semi-final second leg on Tuesday on penalties.

Forrest took the 2-1 win in the first leg at Bramall Lane and Sheffield United needed to overcome a deficit in order to book a place in the final. Brennan Johnson gave Sheffield the lead after 19 minutes of play before Morgan Gibbs-White equalized for the visitors in the 47th minute.

John Flick scored Sheffield’s second goal to send the equalizer into extra time as the two teams tightened their penalty shootout.

From the penalty spot, Samba did a great job saving kicks from Oliver Norwood, Conor Hourihane and Gibbs White as his team won 3-2 on penalties to end their play-off win.

Woods continues his run to face Huddersfield Town at Wembley after defeating Luton.
