  • GOOOOOAAAALLLLLLL!!!! WHAT A HIT!!!! Newcastle finally break the deadlock, and in some style!!! The corner is cleared out to Schar, who drives to the edge of the box and smashes an absolute piledriver of a shot beyond Henderson and into the top corner!!! That was some strike, and what a way to score the first goal of the season!!! A deserved 1-0 lead to Newcastle, with Forest's resilience finally broken.

  • GOOOOAAALLL!!! That should seal it for Newcastle!!! Williams loses out to Saint-Maximin, who gets the ball back and sends Joelinton down the byline. He cuts the ball back to Wilson, who escapes his man and flicks it beyond Henderson into the far corner! A sumptuous finish, and one which puts Newcastle into a commanding 2-0 lead!
