NOTTINGHAM FOREST are set to ask Manchester United for permission for Dean Henderson to face his parent club in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

Reds boss Steve Cooper said: “It’s something we will look into the possibility of pursuing. 

“But it’s all just talk at the minute. 

“We haven’t really had a chance to breathe since the game. We’ll pick that up as and when.” 

Henderson made saves from Ruben Neves and Joe Hodge after the tie had finished 1-1.

It meant four-time winners Forest reached the semi-finals for the first time since 1992. 

The goalkeeper, 25, was forced to sit out Forest’s loss to the Red Devils when the sides met in the Premier League in December. 

Veteran Wayne Hennessey stepped in for that game and would be the obvious candidate to step in in Henderson’s absence. 


Meanwhile, the Football Association is reviewing the melee which took place at the end of Wednesday’s ill-tempered game. 

Stewards ran on the pitch to intervene in the immediate aftermath of Forest’s shoot-out win as players became engulfed in a mass brawl. 

Forest‘s Morgan Gibbs-White, who joined from Wolves in the summer, was among those who appeared involved after he celebrated in front of away fans who had booed him. 

But Cooper said: “I haven’t had chance to assess it. 

“It has been a quick turnaround and I have been more focused on the Leicester game.  

“Everything was calm in the tunnel after and I know some of the Wolves staff and we spoke about the game. 

“I don’t want to say something because I am not aware of what happened.”
