Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle Match Preview and Team News
In the first part of the season, Nottingham Forest looked like one of the leading candidates for the trip back to the Championship. But after several wins (mostly against relegation candidates), they climbed out of the danger zone. Now they are in 14th place in the Premier League but only two points away from the relegation zone. With just five points difference between the 12th and the 20th team on the league’s table, we are up for an exciting relegation battle this season. Nottingham Forest is in bad form, winning just two points in the last five games. Still, they are much better at home and have lost just one game in the previous 12 matches in all competitions. Brennan Johnson is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. After a 3:1 loss to Tottenham, Steve Cooper was disappointed with the performance. He said his team needed to be more aggressive in the first half but saw some positives in the second half. He also said he knew it would be hard to get a positive result against Tottenham but still expected a better performance from the team.
Newcastle United is outstanding this season, but with recent investments, that actually is not too big of a surprise. They are in 5th place, just four points behind the 4th-placed Tottenham, and a position that would guarantee an appearance in the Champions League next season. The Magpies have played one or two games less than most of the teams, and in the next two games, they will have an opportunity to grab third place. After the Nottingham Forest game, they will play at home against the direct contender for the Champions League spot – Manchester United. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Allan Saint-Maximin plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable, he deserves to play in a better team. With a 2:1 over the Wolves, Newcastle broke the five-game winless streak. After the game, manager Eddie Howe was delighted with a win. He said the team looked great in the first half and should have scored more than one goal in the first 45 minutes. He also said they could have been better in the second half but still managed to win all three points.
