Forest vs Newcastle Preview

England, Premier League, Friday, March 17th, 20:00 (UK)

It’s been a difficult few weeks for Steve Cooper and his side, they’ve picked up just two points from their previous five league matches. The relegation battle is one of the tightest in the competition’s history, picking up maximum points is a must from a Forest perspective given they’re at home.

Newcastle earned their first win since January on Sunday afternoon, Alexander Isak and Miguel Almiron both found the back of the net at St James’ Park which keeps their top-four hopes alive. Eddie Howe’s men have been decent travellers this season, they’ve lost just two from 12 and have conceded just nine times.

These sides met on the opening day of the season back in August which feels like a lifetime ago. The Magpies dominated from start to finish in a 2-0 win. Forest have struggled massively on the road for the entire season but the City Ground has proved to be a tough place to visit.

The hosts are considerable underdogs here, priced at 5.8 to record a much-needed victory, the draw is best priced at 3.9 whilst Newcastle are rather short at 1.7. It’ll be tricky to see this game have a huge amount of goals, Forest’s matches at home average just 2.46 per 90 whilst it’s 2.08 when Newcastle are on the road.

  • Forest have the worst away record in the division, 6 points and 4 goals scored in 13 matches.

I’m expecting Alexander Isak to start here tomorrow night after his goal last weekend. The Swede has looked like a threat whenever he’s been on the field this season and I’m confident that he can record at least two shots. In Isak’s six starts in the Premier League, he’s registered multiple shots in five matches.

Morgan Gibbs-White has played the full 90 minutes in his last eight Premier League games, he’s had a shot in seven of those matches which includes all five at home. The 23-year-old has had a shot in 12 of his 13 home league appearances this season now stretching into ten consecutive matches.

With this being a massive game for both sides for different reasons, cards should be expected. Forest and Newcastle are seeing averages of over four cards per 90 when playing at home and away respectively. Both sides have been booked in 12 of 13 matches at the City Ground.

Newcastle have been cautioned in nine of their 12 away games this season including all four this calendar year. 10 of their 12 opponents have been brandished a booking.

Paul Tierney is in charge for this one, he’s averaging 3.41 yellows per 90 across the Premier League season. In the 22 games that he’s refereed, Tierney has booked both sides on 19 occasions.

  • Alexander Isak Over 1.5 Shots
  • Morgan Gibbs-White Over 0.5 Shots
  • Both Teams Over 0.5 Cards
