Shipley opened the scoring in fine style with a top corner finish from more than 25 yards after four minutes.

City went into the break with the one-goal cushion but Forest netted an equaliser ten minutes after the restart.

Sambou the reinstated City's lead after 67 minutes when he ran across his marker in the area and applied a superb volleyed finish to Jacob Whitmore's whipped in cross from the right.
