Jake Forster-Caskey's second half missed penalty proved costly as Forest Green went on to dump Charlton out of the Carabao Cup on penaltes. 

After a goalless draw, Albie Morgan missed the decisive penalty in the shoot out before Shawn McCoulsky fired home to send the League Two side through 5-3.

Lee Bowyer made 11 changes to the team that had beat Stoke City in the league on Saturday, giving new signings Chuks Aneke, Macauley Bonne, Sam Field and Ben Amos their first competetive strarts.

The game was one to forget, dominated by my misplaced passes and sloppy passages of play from both sides. 

Rovers started off the strongest, comig close when a devilishl cross was cleared by Deji Oshilaja from the six-yard box, narrowly missing his own goal.

Alfie Doughty, prefered at left-back over Toby Stevenson, improved his game after a shaky start where he called Amos into action. 

A nervous back pass forcing the former Manchester United man to stretch and slide to knock it out for a throw-in.

He did however create a couple chances by crossing in from the left flank showing his urge to get forward and attack, standing out amongst a host of mediocre first-half performances.

George Lapslie was impressive in periods, showing his strength and lobbing a ball into the box which found Chuks Aneke’s head only for his header to fall into the hands of the Forest Green keeper Wollacott.

Wollacott was forced into another save not long after, this time he knew little of it.

Naby Sarr's veneomous volley strikign the keeper flush in the face before the defence could clear it as Sam Field look to get on the loose ball.

Charlton earned themselves a golden opportunity to take the lead as Sarr drove into the box with a defence penetrating run, only to be taken down for a penalty.

Forster-Caskey stepped up to take it, but a weak shot to the right of the goal was comfortably saved by the Green’s keeper.

The game ended with a penalty shootout as the Green’s came out 5-3 winners after Albie Morgan’s penalty hit the post.

Charlton go again on the weekend away at Barnsley, which should be a tough affair for both sides.
