Forest will go head-to-head with Newcastle at the City Ground on Saturday evening.
The hosts currently sit in 16th place in the Premier League and have hit a poor run of form, failing to win any of their league games in 2024. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side come into this game after overcoming Bristol City to progress to the FA Cup Fifth Round in midweek.
Newcastle have improved in recent weeks, winning three and drawing one of their last five games in all competitions. However, Eddie Howe will be frustrated with his side’s most recent performance, with his men drawing 4-4 at home against 17th-placed Luton.
Forest and Newcastle have already faced each other this season, with Forest causing a huge Boxing Day shock, beating the Magpies 3-1 at St James’ Park.
