Two goals from Virgil Gomis earned Nottingham Forest a 2-1 victory at Leicester City to continue their perfect start to this season's Premier League Cup. 

Gomis controlled and finished smartly after great work from Yassine En-Neyah on the right to put Forest 1-0 up at Holmes Park, before Khanya Leshabela curled in a superb first-half equaliser for Leicester. 

But Gomis scored again from close range on 78 minutes to stun their Premier League 2 Division 1 opponents. 

Forest's second win from two matches puts them three points clear of Leicester at the top of Group D.
