Nottingham Forest beat Sheffield United on penalties to set up a Championship play-off final meeting with Huddersfield Town despite losing a drama-packed semi-final second leg at the City Ground.

Brice Samba produced goalkeeping heroics for the hosts at the end of a pulsating tie, saving spot kicks from Oli Norwood, Conor Hourihane and Morgan Gibbs-White.

Thousands of joyous Forest fans spilled onto the pitch when Samba saved Gibbs-White’s weak penalty at the end of a tie that finished 3-3 on aggregate.

Brennan Johnson had added to Forest’s 2-1 aggregate lead from the first leg with a sliding first-half finish, but second-half goals from Gibbs-White and John Fleck sent the game to extra time.
