Newcastle 2 Nottingham Forest 3 (AET) – 23 August 2017 7.45pm
Another day (night), another cup exit.
Newcastle started well with a Mitrovic strike on three minutes, before falling victim to some shocking defender and went behind 2-1 leading up to the break.
However, an even better Aarons goal levelled in first-half injury time.
A goalless second-half was then followed by extra time and another poor goal (the winner) conceded.
