    He added: “We entered those teams with our eyes wide open and we accept that we would be fined for doing so. 

    "While we don’t feel we should be paying ‘fees’ to get our youngsters experience, we view that as an investment in their development."

    When has your team thrown away a certain victory or snatched a dramatic result?

    Simon Woolley: Aston Villa being 2-0 up against Stoke at home 2009 and conceding two in injury time hurt at the time. Going for the Champions League under Martin O'Neil and if we had held on, who knows what would have happened.

    Lee Wyatt: As a Forest fan I'd have to say 2003 play offs v Sheffield United. 1-1 after 1st leg then we are leading 2-0 after an hour of 2nd leg. 10 mins later it's 2-2. They went 4-2 up in extra time and in 119th min an own goal makes it 4-3. I was devastated especially since we lead 2-0 with 30 mins left.

    Tom Mumbles: Norwich City v Liverpool home 2015/16..winning 3-1 25 mins to go lost 5-4. Norwich v Newcastle 2016 away winning 3-1 5 mins to go, lost 4-3.

  6. Man City will 'have to dominate' in Denmark

    Brondby v Manchester City (17:00 GMT)

    Manchester City v Brondby

    Manchester City boss Nick Cushing has warned his side not to sit back in the second leg of their Women's Champions League last-16 tie against Brondby.

    The English league champions hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg, after Keira Walsh's fine individual goal gave them victory in Manchester on 9 November.

    The reverse tie begins at 17:00 GMT on Wednesday with City the last remaining British side in this year's Women's Champions League, playing in their first European campaign.

    "We have to dominate the ball. If we sit off and try and hold it, Brondby will beat us," Cushing told BBC Sport.

    His side have already won a domestic double in 2016, having added the Continental Cup to their maiden league title.

    Football

    Chris Hughton

    Football coaches from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are still "at a disadvantage" when it comes to getting top coaching or managerial jobs, a report has found.

    The study was compiled by the Sports People's Think Tank with help from Loughborough University and anti-racism group the Fare Network.

    It found that only one in 25 managers, assistant managers or senior coaches was from the BAME community with minimal progress over the last two years.

    "It remains disappointing to note that since the first report in 2014 the figures have changed very little," said the report.

  11. More from Steve Evans on Mansfield

    Football

    Flattery is surely an excellent way to get your new chairman on side.

    Steve Evans, who has been named Mansfield manager this afternoon, has already begun paying his new chairman John Radford a few compliments.

    "From knowing people in the Championship, we have a chairman who can substantiate being in the Championship," he said.

    "This is a wonderful club, if you were starting out at the start of the season and picking out the top five, Mansfield would be one of them.

    The five-time Olympic champion is in a share of third place with Rio silver medallist Mark Cavendish.

  19. City miss out on shirt deal for bizarre reason

    Pep Guardiola

    Can you imagine Manchester City lining up in red? No, me neither.

    We've told you about Barcelona's new £50m shirt-sponsorship deal with e-commerce company Rakuten but, according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, it could have been City signing the deal.

    They say City came close to making an agreement with the company in the 2011-2012 season but turned it down for one reason - because Rakuten asked City to switch to play in red.
