Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle

Gibbs-White is caught offside from an Elanga flick on and gets a shove from Botman before the pair exchange handbags.

There’s a bit of pushing and shoving and Anthony Taylor is quick to book them both.

Eddie Howe then makes his first change as Barnes replaces Almiron after his goal on his comeback last week.

He’s given a typically harsh welcome given his Leicester City roots.

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle

Nottingham Forest continue to assert pressure this half and are having most of the play.

Miley thinks he’s fouled by Gibbs-White, but nothing is given and Tavares drives towards goal.

However, the Arsenal loanee then fires a simply awful effort with his right foot that was closer to landing in the River Trent than Newcastle’s goal.

They need to make one of these openings count though, because you feel like the visitors could easily score one themselves.

GOAL DISALLOWED: Awoniyi – Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle

Yates does brilliantly to hold off a couple of Newcastle players, before threading a ball in behind to Awoniyi.

The Forest striker drives towards goal and fires home brilliantly, but the offside flag is straight up.

And replays show he was a yard or so off. Another promising sign though for the hosts.

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle

A bright start from Forest to the second half.

They have Newcastle hemeed in and want a penalty for a handball, but replays clearly show it accidentally flicked Trippier’s right hand while it was by his side.

Newcastle are yet to really get on the ball.

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle

Let’s hope for more of the same in the second half.

Mail Sport at the City Ground

A deserved slice of luck for Forest?

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle (Hudson-Odoi)

Hudson-Odoi has the ball on the left side, he drives in-field and plays a one-two with Dominguez.

The winger then fires at goal but it takes a wicked deflection off Miley and leaves Dubravka wrong-footed to level the game in the 50th minute of the first half.

What a brilliant half and you would probably say Forest deserve that.

Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle

A brilliant finish from Schar and it sort of came out of nothing as he seized on the loose ball.

Five minutes added time have just been signalled to bring to a close an entertaining first half.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle (Schar)

Newcastle have a free kick on the half way line.

Trippier floats a cross into the box, the ball bounces and Botman heads back across goal.

Schar – who scored twice against Aston Villa last week – is there to seize on the loose ball as he finishes with aplomb from about 15 yards.

A brilliant goal from the Swiss defender and it comes at a time when his side were under some big pressure.

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle

Watching Forest’s attackers in full flight really is something.

Dominguez wins the ball off Guimaraes and Hudson-Odoi picks it up.

The former Chelsea man bursts away up the pitch and plays it wide to Elanga.

He floats in a dangerous cross, but Schar does well to just about deal with it and Newcastle then clear the corner.

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle

A worry for Nottingham Forest, with Murillo limping after landing awkwardly a few minutes ago.

The Brazilian has been brilliant for Forest this season and a real mainstay in an otherwise ever-changing defence.

Newcastle seem to have slightly weathered the storm and are back controlling posession.

And Murillo is all Ok to continue.

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle

The home crowd are really up for this and you can see the confidence growing among Forest’s players now.

You can take another look at the equaliser below, and what a coutner-attack it was.

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle (Elanga)

A brilliant counter-attack from Forest as Gibbs-White picks up the ball, and plays a delightful pass in behind.

Elanga leaves Burn in his wake again and Dubravka comes out of his area to leave himself in no-man’s land, before the winger slots home.

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle

Newcastle have continued their impressive start since the goal, but Nottingahm Forest remain a threat on the break with their front four.

Gordon has just done some great harrying to force a corner after a loose pass from from Niakhate.

Eddie Howe will be satisfied with the first 24 minutes here.

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle

Another huge chance for Forest.

We highlighted a big battle being Elanga’s pace up against the under-fire Burn.

Dominguez sets the former Man United man in behind and he leaves Burn, bears down on goal, but Dubravka does brilliantly to save.

Frustrating but promising signs for Forest.

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle

A brilliantly worked goal but you do have to question the defending.

Forest’s defenders ball-watched as Almiron played the corner short and it was a great cross from Trippier, with Guimaraes ghosting in around the back unmarked.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle (Guimaraes)

A second corner is earned and it goes short.

The ball is played to Trippier who fires in a delightful cross to the back post and Guimaraes is there unmarked to fire home expertly on the volley.

What a finish and a brilliantly worked set piece.

Great start for Newcastle.

Nottingham Forest 0-0 Newcastle

Now a chance up the other end.

Newcastle play the ball forward and Longstaff picks it up.

Fresh from two goals last week against Luton, he drives forward and fires a fierce shot at goal from 25 yards.

It bounces just before Selz and he does well to parry it out for a corner.

Nottingham Forest 0-0 Newcastle

A brilliant counter-attack, which starts with Awoniyi.

He plays a ball in behind and Tavares puts on the burners to leave Schar in his wake.

Tavares lays it perfectly back to Gibbs-White but the Forest No 10 puts it wide. He’s got to do better there. Positive for Nuno’s side though.

Nottingham Forest 0-0 Newcastle

A quiet start to the game.

As expected, Forest are sitting with men behind the ball and Newcastle have had most of the early possession.

Gordon doesn’t look to be showing any signs of the injury which made him a doubt which is good news for the visitors.

Nottingham Forest 0-0 Newcastle

Bruno Guimaraes gets us underway.

Another interesting dynamic tonight is former Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Selz makes his home debut for Nottingham Forest after a deadline day move from Strasbourg.

One of the assistant referees caused a slight delay after he came out late for some reason.

Kick off moments away

And doesn’t the City Ground look a picture?

The players are in the tunnel and we’re almost ready to go.

It promises to be a cracker!

Nottingham Forest’s tricky run

After a couple of bruising cup replays against Blackpool and Bristol City in recent weeks, full focus is back on the league for Nottingham Forest.

After winning two of their first three games under Nuno, it has since been a trickier run.

Forest have picked up just one point from their past three games, although they have competed in each match and it’s been narrow margins that have cost them.

How does the table look ahead of kick off?

Some big results at the top and the bottom already today.

It’s been a decent afternoon for Nottingham Forest, with both Luton and Everton losing.

Meanwhile, Newcastle can jump up to seventh with a win.

Full Time scores around the grounds

It’s already been a highly entertaining day around the Premier League, with plenty of goals and late drama.

Here’s a full rundown of today’s results.

What happened last time these sides met?

In what was Nuno Espirito Santo’s second game in charge of Nottingham Forest, his side caused a huge shock at St James’ Park against Newcastle.

After Alexander Isak put the hosts 1-0 ahead, it felt as if it was going to be another comfortable afternoon on home turf for Eddie Howe’s side.

However, in what a scintilating display of counter-attacking football, Forest fought back and ended up winning 3-1 thanks to a Chris Wood hat-trick against his former club.

Anthony Elanga and Morgan Gibbs-White were brilliant that day and will hope to cause Newcastle’s defence more problems tonight.

You can watch the highlights from the Boxing Day clash below….

Gordon boost for Newcastle

A case of mind games or were people just reading too much into Eddie Howe’s words on Anthony Gordon?

Below is what he said yesterday, with many taking that as likely the winger would be absent for a few games.

But, here he is and what a boost for Newcastle his presence in the starting line-up is.

Nottingham Forest TEAM NEWS

And Forest’s key man is fit to start too, with Morgan Gibbs-White seemingly all good despite Nuno Espirito Santo’s pre-game concerns.

Forest make just one change, with Moussa Niakhate replacing Andrew Omabamidele.

Gibbs-White, Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi will be key this evening if Forest are to get something out of this game.

Newcastle TEAM NEWS

The huge team news from Eddie Howe’s side is that Anthony Gordon is fit to start.

Gordon had seemingly being ruled out of this clash by Howe after picking up an injury that forced him off against Luton, with the Magpies boss revealing on Friday that he hadn’t trained all week.

Elsewhere, it’s just one change with Callum Wilson returning in place of Jacob Murphy, while the under-fire Dan Burn keeps his place.

Fitness concerns for Forest

If they are without Morgan Gibbs-White today that would be a huge blow.

Nuno Espirito Santo has already ruled out top scorer Chris Wood, while Gonzalo Montiel is another doubt.

We’ll find out just who is missing in a few minutes time.

Hectic Premier League schedule

While we wait for this evening’s clash, a reminder of what’s been happening already this afternoon in the Premier League.

The early kick off saw Man City just about beat Everton, with Erling Haaland netting two late goals in a 2-0 victory.

Five other games are currently into the second half and here’s a score update on those.

Fulham 2-1 AFC Bournemouth

Luton Town 1-2 Sheffield United

A big game at both ends of the table

There is plenty riding on tonight’s clash at both ends of the table.

Newcastle endured a tricky winter period, amid a slew of injuries, but have four points from their past two games – although they were disappointed to draw 4-4 with Luton last week.

They remain in the European race though and before today, the Magpies were five points off Man United in sixth.

Meanwhile, a tricky run for Nottingham Forest has seen them drop to just two points clear of the bottom three.

This comes with a potential points penalty on the horizon given they were charged with breaching the Premier League’s financial rules last month.

Both sides will be desperate for points.
