Newcastle United will play Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on Friday night at the City Ground in an effort to increase their chances of qualifying for the Champions League the following season. The Tricky Trees haven’t lost a league game at home since last October, while the Magpies have yet to win away in the top tier in 2023.
Just five points separate the bottom nine teams in the table, and Nottingham Forest have only won once in their previous seven Premier League games. This has led to one of the most intense relegation battles in recent memory.
Last Saturday, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scored goals to close the game in North London, handing Steve Cooper’s team a 3-1 loss against Tottenham Hotspur. Joe Worrall scored a consolation goal in the closing 10 minutes.
Forest is still in 14th place in the standings, but following last weekend’s results for five of the six teams behind them, worries of an immediate return to the Championship are starting to surface as the Tricky Trees are now only two points above the danger zone.
The Tricky Trees will be confident of returning to winning ways as they attempt to keep themselves out of the relegation zone. 77% of Nottingham’s Premier League points have been earned at home this season, the greatest percentage in the division.
