Forest completed the half with goals either side of a strike from Ray Rafferty to lead 8-5 at the break.

With neither side having any substitutes, the sides were the same for the second half. Forest had scored twice before the fifth minute after the restart when Paul Seddon neatly flicked past the keeper.

Although Yogi hit a ninth for City, the home side scored another three and ran out worthy 17-9 winners.
