Huddersfield Town 0-2 Nottingham Forest

Forest overcame the Terriers in the last 20 minutes at the John Smith's Stadium

Nottingham Forest maintained an unbeaten start to the season by defeating Huddersfield to secure a spot in the Capital One Cup third round.

Stuart Pearce's side, who lead the Championship, overcame their league rivals thanks to an own goal from James Vaughan and Henri Lansbury's effort.

Substitute Vaughan, formerly of Everton, inexplicably headed in Jamie Paterson's cross in the 72nd minute.

And it was 2-0 when Lansbury fired in low from the edge of the area.

Jon Stead hit the post for the Yorkshire side with a curling 20-yard effort early in the match.

Forest's Michail Antonio had a header cleared off the line by Adam Hammill, while Town goalkeeper Joe Murphy denied Lars Veldwijk and Jamie Paterson in quick succession.

Forest travel to Premier League Tottenham in the third round.

Nottingham Forest assistant manager Steve Wigley:

"When you make changes you hope that people step up and give the manager a problem in his team selection.

"That's what we hoped and I think the lads did that tonight, which is pleasing because if you're going to have any assault on the Championship you've got to have a [strong] squad.

"We feel as though with some boys coming back from injury and what we've added, we've got a squad that's capable of challenging."

Huddersfield caretaker boss Mark Lillis:

"I said to the lads there, 'We come in on Thursday and I don't want any long faces. We've got points to play for at Watford'.

"It's great to have a fantastic cup run but the main thing for Huddersfield Town is playing in the Championship."
