Jürgen Klopp had conceded his scant knowledge of Nottingham extended to its association with Robin Hood and, until Diogo Jota poked in the winning goal 12 minutes from time to propel Liverpool into a FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City, he was in jeopardy of being on the wrong end of an upset that would have provided an unwanted memory.
Forest proved courageous and stubborn, leading Klopp to make a quadruple substitution midway through a stale second half, replenishing his entire midfield, and the hosts should have taken the lead, Philip Zinckernagel wasting a golden opportunity. As the game reached a barnstorming climax, Ryan Yates missed a chance to take the game to extra time.
