Newcastle ease to victory over Forest.

Fabian Schär got the opener for Newcastle in the 58th minute. Newcastle's Callum Wilson added another in the 78th minute, and there was nothing between the teams for the remainder, resulting in a 2-0 win.

The Overview

  • The Magpies converted their dominance of the ball (62% possession) into lots of chances, clocking up 23 shots.
  • The Tricky Trees didn't generate enough chances, only mustering five total shots throughout the contest.
  • The scoreline could have been more impressive if the Magpies had their shooting boots on, with their shot accuracy down at 43%.
  • Forest lacked discipline, picking up three yellow cards in the game. Joe Worrall, Lewis O'Brien and Neco Williams all ended up in the referee's book.
