Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle odds


Odds correct as of 12:30 on February 08

After a brief up-turn following Nuno Espirito Santo’s arrival, Forest have fallen back into their tailspin, losing two and drawing one of their last three Premier League games. A point against Bournemouth last weekend means they have now sunk to 16th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are enduring a terribly inconsistent campaign thanks, largely, to the chronic injury problems they’ve been dealt. The Magpies currently sit ninth in the table with 10 wins and 10 losses in 23 games. Most recently, Eddie Howe’s men threw away two first-half leads then had to battle from two goals down to salvage a 4-4 draw at home to Luton Town following a morale-boosting 3-1 win away at Aston Villa. It very much feels like every time they take a couple of steps forward, Newcastle are pushed one step back.

Their 3-1 win at Aston Villa last time out ended a seven-game winless run on the road for the Magpies in the Premier League (D2 L5). They last won consecutive away games in March/April last year, a run of three which included victory at Nottingham Forest.
