          Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle United Preview, Tips & Stats

          Nottingham Forest welcome Newcastle United to the City Ground this Saturday for the late kickoff in the Premier League. Newcastle will be looking for a win to get back into the conversation for European football whereas Nottingham Forest need to put as many points between them and the relegation zone.

          Nottingham Forest currently sit 16th in the Premier League after 23 games. Forest have five wins, six draws and 12 losses, leaving them on 21 points, only two points above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Nottingham Forest have one win, two draws and two losses.

          Back in the Premier League, Nottingham Forest faced Brentford. Danilo opened the scoring and Wood was also on the scoresheet, but goals from Ivan Toney, Ben Mee and Neal Maupay gave The Bees the 3 - 2 win. The Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Nottingham Forest took on Bristol City. There were only two shots on target for the whole 90 minutes as the game finished a 0 - 0 draw.

          Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka both scored in the second half, and despite a late goal from Taiwo Awoniyi, Arsenal held on for the 2 - 1 win. Bournemouth took the early lead after a goal from Justin Kluivert in the fifth minute. Callum Hudson-Odoi equalised on the stroke of halftime and despite the late red card to Philip Billing, the game finished 1 - 1.

          The last time out for Nottingham Forest was the FA Cup Replay against Bristol City. Divock Origi opened the scoring in the eighth minute but Jason Knight equalised before halftime. Neither team scored in the second half as the tie went to penalties. Sam Bell missed his penalty and Forest scored all five in a 5 - 3 win for Forest.

          Newcastle, on the other hand, currently sit ninth in the Premier League. In 23 games, The Magpies have ten wins, three draws and ten losses which leaves them on 33 points, 13 points from the Champions League.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Newcastle have three wins, one draw and one loss.

          The Third Round of the FA Cup saw a Tyne Wear derby. A Daniel Ballard own goal and a brace from Alexander Isak gave Newcastle the 3 - 0 win over Sunderland. Bernardo Silva opened the scoring for Manchester City, but goals from Isak and Anthony Gordon gave Newcastle the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. However, goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Oscar Bobb grabbed the 3 - 2 win for City.

          In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Newcastle took on Fulham. Sean Longstaff and Dan Burn both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Newcastle. A rare brace from Fabian Schar and an own goal from Alex Moreno gave Newcastle the 3 - 1 win over Aston Villa, with Ollie Watkings scoring late on for Villa.

          The most recent outing for Newcastle was an eight goal thriller against Luton Town. A brace from Longstaff and goals from Kieran Trippier and Harvey Barnes grabbed a 4 - 4 draw for Newcastle after goals from Gabriel Osho, Ross Barkley, Carlton Morris and Elijah Adebayo.

          Nottingham Forest and Newcastle have met 115 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1898. Newcastle have the better record in the fixture with 53 wins in comparison to Forest’s 35 wins, the other 27 games ending in a draw.
