Newcastle United player ratings v Forest: 4/10 'struggled' & 'quality' 8/10 as Bruno Guimaraes steals the show

Nottingham Forest 2-3 Newcastle United player ratings: Here's how Bruno Guimaraes, Dan Burn, Anthony Gordon and co fared.

Newcastle United won 3-2 at Nottingham Forest in the Premier League - here's how the players fared.

Eddie Howe made just one change from the starting line-up that faced Luton Town last weekend with Callum Wilson starting his first match of 2024 in place of Jacob Murphy, who dropped to the bench.

Newcastle came out of the blocks fast and opened the scoring inside the opening 10 minutes as Kieran Trippier's cross was volleyed in by Bruno Guimaraes at the back post.

Forest drew things level mid-way through the first half as Anthony Elanga burst through on goal and slotted the ball through Martin Dubravka's legs to make it 1-1.

But as half-time approached, Newcastle took the lead once again as Fabian Schar half-volleyed in Sven Botman's flick-on to make it 2-1 to the visitors.

Just before the half-time whistle blew, Callum Hudson-Odoi's strike deflected heavily off Miley to make it 2-2 going in at the break.

Forest had the ball in the net shortly after the restart through Taiwo Awoniyi but the offside flag kept the score level.

Newcastle then took the lead for the third time as Guimaraes won back possession before finding the bottom right corner of the goal from the edge of the box.

And that would be enough to win it for Newcastle as they claimed a fourth successive away victory.
