There were unpleasant scenes at the City Ground as Manchester United fans tumbled onto collapsed advertising hoarding while celebrating their side’s third goal.
It came about after the United players went to celebrate after Fernandes thumped home from Anthony Elanga’s smart flick in the 89th minute as United ran out 3-0 winners in the first leg.
But as cameras panned to the celebrations in the stands, United fans came rushing down while the advertising hoarding was collapsing.
It looked for a moment like it was going to turn ugly, but the board was quickly reassembled and the fans did well not to spill onto the pitch.
From what could be seen, it looks as though fans escaped injuries, as stewards rushed over to help.
Fernandes’ last-minute strike sealed a convincing win for United who take a three-goal advantage back to Old Trafford.
Gary Neville, who was on commentary for the clash, sounded concerned as cameras focused on the trouble in the away end.
He said: ‘It’s not pleasant to watch that for a moment or two, but it looks like everyone is okay.’
Forest look down and out of the tie, with the East Midland side going behind to a superb solo strike from Marcus Rashford after just six minutes.
Meanwhile January signing Wout Weghorst doubled United’s lead just before half-time to net his first goal for the Red Devils.
