NOTTINGHAM FOREST STRIKER Robbie Findley established himself as an early contender for miss of the year — by firing over the bar from less than two yards out.

The American international was perfectly positioned to tap home Forest’s equaliser in the 11th minute, but somehow got his feet in a muddle and ended up completely missing the target, much to the relief of Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal.

Findley’s miss would cost Forest dearly as Jermaine Beckford hit a hat-trick in a 4-0 win for Nigel Pearson’s men, who will now meet Paolo di Canio’s Swindon in the FA Cup fourth round.
