This is an important game at both ends of the Premier League table as both sides search for three points. Nottingham Forest are in 14th but just two points above the relegation spots. Newcastle meanwhile are fifth four points behind Tottenham in fourth although they have two games in hand.

The hosts are on a poor run of form failing to win any of their last five losing three of these. Last time out they lost 3-1 to Tottenham finding themselves two goals down in just 35 minutes. At home, Forest have been tough to beat and have not lost a Premier League fixture here since September.

The Magpies put a five game winless run behind them last weekend but it is still just two victories in eight. They picked up an important three points last time out with a 2-1 home success over Wolves. On the road, they are four without a victory although three of these have finished all-square.

The North-Eastern side do not tend to see goals on the road with just one of their last five seeing both teams score and two of them ending goalless. The East Midlands outfit have seen both teams fail to score in five of their last nine.

Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle Match Stats

Recent road trips for the Magpies have seen them keep clean sheets in three of their last five including at Arsenal. Defence is key for the Magpies and against Forest chances are going to be at a premium here. Backing under 2.5 goals is an option but both teams to score no looks the more sensible play.

Kieran Trippier has five assists for the season including one last week against Wolves. This does not do enough justice to the player with expected assists expecting him to have ten for the campaign. He is at the heart at everything Newcastle do and with a Sky Bet enhancement in place he looks good value to register at least one assist.
