Match preview

Nottingham Forest are back in the Premier League and, having spent 23 years away, they do not intend to make an instant return to the Championship.

When Steve Cooper took over, they were bottom of the table with just one point from seven fixtures.

Eight months later, the Reds were celebrating play-off final success against Huddersfield Town.

Safe to say, they’re going to need a better start this time round.

Since that victory at Wembley, Forest have made no fewer than 12 first-team editions to their squad.

Dean Henderson, Neco Williams, Jesse Lingard, Moussa Niakhaté, Taiwo Awoniyi and others are all set to debut here.

In fact, of the players who started against Huddersfield, it’s very possible that only Joe Worrall and Brennan Johnson will also be in the XI for this one.

This though is a very tough first assignment for the newly-promoted club, with Newcastle United very much on the up.

Eddie Howe’s side won 12 of their final 18 matches last season, surging from 19th all the way up to 11th.

This featured a run of six successive victories at St James’ Park, their longest streak since Sir Bobby Robson was in charge.

The anticipated summer of spending hasn’t materialised, but Nick Pope and Sven Botman will debut in this one.

Anything other than a home win would be a surprise.
