Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United: What TV channel it is on and the latest injury news
Newcastle United make the trip to face Nottingham Forest on Friday night aiming for back-to-back victories.
A win for the Magpies would complete the double over Forest after their opening day win over Steve Cooper’s side at St James’ Park. Eddie Howe’s side also know that a win would, at least temporarily, move them to within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and guarantee that they will head into the international break in 5th place in the Premier League.
However, their hosts come into the game with a very decent home record this season aiming for a win that would put even more daylight between themselves and the relegation zone. Here, we take a look at everything you need to know about Newcastle United’s clash with Nottingham Forest.
