Sidelined Cumbrian goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been shortlisted for an award.

The Nottingham Forest star is nominated for Carabao Cup player of the round.

Henderson's place on the shortlist followed his penalty shoot-out heroics in Forest's quarter-final victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He also produced some vital saves during the 90 minutes, before stopping two Wolves penalties.

Henderson faces Marcus Rashford, from the Cumbrian's parent club Manchester United, for the award.

Other shortlisted players are Newcastle United defender Dan Burn and Southampton winger Moussa Djenepo.

Henderson, 25, is facing a spell on the sidelines with a thigh injury.

Forest boss Steve Cooper confirmed the Whitehaven star would be out for more than a month.

The ex-Carlisle United academy keeper hurt his thigh in Forest's recent Premier League victory over Leicester City.

"Dean is going to be out for four to five weeks, which is obviously a blow for all of us, especially him, but these things happen and we carry on with our work and will support Dean to get fit as quickly as possible," Cooper told the BBC.
