Newcastle's woes continue with 2nd-round exit in League Cup

Newcastle followed up its disappointing start in the Premier League with a surprise second-round exit in the English League Cup on Wednesday, with second-tier Nottingham Forest winning 3-2 after extra time at St. James' Park.

It is now three straight losses to start the season for the side managed by Rafa Benitez, whose future at the northeast club has been questioned this summer while Newcastle struggles to bring in his preferred targets in the transfer window.

Tyler Walker scored the extra-time winner for Forest. Newcastle, which has lost 2-0 to Tottenham and 1-0 at Huddersfield in the Premier League, made 10 changes to its starting team.
