Cue bedlam from the Forest players led by goalkeeper Dean Henderson and Morgan Gibbs-White.

The shot-stopper celebrated with the Forest faithful as his midfield team-mate decided to wind up his former team.

Gibbs-White joined Forest from Wolves last summer and celebrated the win by sliding in front of the travelling faithful and putting his fingers in his ears.

Manchester United loanee Henderson then bounced up and down with a group of team-mates before a melee broke out between the two sets of players.

Gibbs-White appeared to be the target of the Wolves stars’ anger as Henderson and Serge Aurier rushed in to defend their team-mate.

Wolves centre-back Toti Gomes squared up to the pair before stewards tried the separate the trio.

Several Forest stars including striker Emmanuel Dennis tried to pull an emotional Gomes away from the situation.

Aurier in particular looked very annoyed but was soon calmed down by Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui.

Jesse Lingard was also involved in the altercation despite not even being named in the matchday squad.

It was a sour end to the tie but Forest fans may have enjoyed the spectacle as they celebrated reaching the semi-final of a domestic cup for the first time since 1992.

They will take on Manchester United in the two-legged tie later this month.
