Brian Clough will be honoured in Nottingham Forest’s Capital One Cup tie against Spurs on Wednesday, September 24 when 1,000 fans will be given replicas of his famous fashion accessory - a green round neck jumper - to wear at the fixture.

Capital One, the Nottingham-based credit card company and League Cup sponsor, will be handing out the iconic jumpers to all fans travelling on the official supporters’ coaches to White Hart Lane.

A limited number will also be given to Forest fans at the stadium on a first-come-first-served basis.

Clough, one of football’s most loved characters, passed away on September 20, 2004.
