Championship chumps

Where do you start when trying to summarise that?

Four-time League Cup winners Nottingham Forest losing 4-3 to Walsall perhaps? How about Burnley, just relegated from the Premier League, losing to League One Port Vale?

Throw Oxford humiliating Brentford into the mix, plus Luton knocking out Bristol City, Notts County dumping out Huddersfield, Shrewsbury winning at Blackburn and Burton defeating Bolton and you have one very memorable night.


A night of shocks

And breathe...
