Subject: Match Report Man United 2-1 Nottingham Forest Manchester United will play Tottenham Hotspur in the Quarter Final at White Hart Lane on December 2nd. By David Anderson, PA Sport Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proved there is nothing second-string about him by cutting down Nottingham Forest in the Worthington Cup to take a Manchester United reserves line-up through to the last eight. The Norwegian international, out of favour because of the form of Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, scored twice in three minutes to book United's place in the quarter-finals. Once again Ferguson fielded a team mostly of reserves for the fourth-round tie, but Solskjaer demonstrated that he is sharp enough to cut it for the first team. The 25-year-old, who scored in the last round against Bury, was rampant in the second half and was denied a hat-trick in the final minutes when Dave Beasant touched a drive on to the bar. Forest, without the luxury of a squad like United's, fielded a virtual full-strength side, although bad boy Pierre van Hooijdonk was named among the substitutes because he reportedly had a head cold. The much-maligned Old Trafford pitch, which had been patched together following Sunday's goalless draw against Newcastle, again started to cut up. That made little difference to Forest's 19-year-old striker Marlon Harewood, who quickly tore into United. He showed Henning Berg a clean pair of heels in the 10th minute, and it needed a fine stop from Raimond van der Gouw, diving to his right, to thwart him. Forest, next to bottom of the Premiership and with just one win in normal time from their last 10 games, continued to press - and van der Gouw made another good save at his near post from Chris Bart-Williams' drive. United were hardly pulling up many trees in the first half, and their first shot on target did not come until the 28th minute. At the other end Stone headed just wide from Andy Gray's cross as Forest continued to do most of the attacking. Van der Gouw denied Forest again in the 33rd minute when Scot Gemmill's shot hit his knee, although the Dutchman seemed to know little about it. United no doubt were given a rollicking by Ferguson at the interval and in the second half they were a totally different proposition. Cruyff twice shot wide of the target in between a deflected Jonathan Greening effort which Beasant magnificently touched around the post. Greening then broke down the left only for the former York striker to shoot straight at Beasant. United finally made the breakthrough in the 57th minute when Cruyff played Solskjaer through with a neat pass, and the Norwegian shot past Beasant. Three minutes later it was 2-0 when Cruyff again released Solskjaer on the left and slotted home his sixth goal of the season. The gate of 37,237 was the lowest at Old Trafford for many a month, but the home fans did not mind as United finally began to play. Forest responded by bringing on van Hooijdonk to boos from the United supporters. Alan Rogers almost hauled Forest back into the game with a terrific 25-yard shot which van der Gouw tipped over the bar. Stone threw the visitors a lifeline in the 68th minute with a goal-of-the-season contender which flew into the top-left corner of Van der Gouw's goal from 30 yards out. Forest had what looked like a strong penalty appeal turned down when Rogers went down under a challenge from Greening. Solskjaer almost completed his hat-trick when Beasant lost the ball in the centre circle after he had raced out of his area, but his long-range effort went just wide of the unguarded goal. He was denied again in the dying minutes when Beasant touched his drive on to the bar.

Subject: Ronny Out 2 Months (Mirror) JINXED JOHNSEN By STEVE MILLAR RONNY Johnsen last night cursed his injury hoodoo as Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson ruled him out of action for two months. The jinxed Norwegian star, missing for seven weeks with ankle ligament trouble before Sunday's comeback, lasted just 25 minutes against Newcastle at Old Trafford before suffering a recurrence of the injury. He has pulled out of Norway's squad to travel to Egypt for a friendly next week. Johnsen, desperate to rescue a season that has reduced him to just five League appearances, still hopes to start running again by Friday. But Ferguson, who also has injury headaches over Ryan Giggs, Andy Cole, Teddy Sheringham, Phil Neville and Jesper Blomqvist, says: "Ronny is out for two months and that's a real blow. It's a very frustrating setback for the club and the player." Johnsen and United's other casualties will be joined on the Worthington Cup sidelines against Nottingham Forest tonight by a host of fellow stars - Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and Paul Scholes.
