Ben Willcocks Host commentator 21:58 FULL TIME: Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle Full time at the City Ground. Isak's stoppage time penalty wins all three points for the Magpies! More to follow. 21:55 Lodi booked 90+6' - Lodi is booked for a cynical foul on Isak. 21:52 GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle 90+3' - Isak keeps his cool and buries his penalty into the top right hand corner.

Newcastle lead 2-1! 21:50 PENALTY! 90+2' - Niakhate gives away a penalty as he handles the ball in the penalty area. Shocking body position from the defender. Navas and Shelvey are booked in the build-up to the penalty. 21:49 Six minutes added on 21:49 Surridge penalised 89' - Surridge takes out Pope as he goes for a header, and Tierney blows for a free-kick in favour of Newcastle. 21:47 End to end stuff! 87' - Felipe makes an excellent block to deny Guimaraes and sparks a Forest counter attack.

Johnson breaks away at pace and gets the better of Burn on the right flank, fashioning an effort on target. Pope makes himself big and saves with his feet to keep things level. Both sides are desperate for the winner here! 21:44 Ritchie on 85' - Ritchie comes on for Murphy as Howe searches for a winner. 21:43 OFF THE LINE! 84' - Isak drills a low effort on goal inside the area and it looks to be heading into the bottom corner, but Aurier is in the right place at the right time to clear the ball off the line. 21:40 Murphy misses 81' - Anderson causes chaos again as he heads the ball across goal and back into the danger area.

Forest's defenders passively let the ball run and Murphy has a great chance to net Newcastle's second, but his effort flashes wide of the target. 21:38 Cooper shakes things up 79' - Surridge replaces Ayew in attack for Forest, as Dennis comes on for right-back Williams. Perhaps a defensive statement from the manager? 21:37 Dennis down 77' - Dennis loses the ball to Guimaraes, who sparks a counter attack, and rolls around on the floor in pain. After Newcastle's counter breaks down, the whistle blows as physio storm the pitch in aid of Dennis. He looks to be in some pain here.

.. 21:32 It's heating up 72' - If that disallowed goal has done anything, it's re-energise the crowd. It's an absolute cauldron of atmosphere inside the City Ground at the moment, and both sides are trading blows in attack. Anderson does well again to fashion an opportunity, but his drilled cross somehow doesn't find a Newcastle man at the back post.

21:26 NO GOAL: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle The goal is chalked off after review, as Longstaff is adjudged offside in the build-up. Anderson is denied his first senior goal for Newcastle... 21:25 On-field review Officials are checking for an offside in the build-up.

21:24 GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle 65' - That's the least Newcastle deserve! Isak sorts his feet out well and chips a ball to the back post towards Anderson, who climbs high to header an effort across goal and into the back of the net. Huge moment for the 20-year-old! 21:20 BIG save from Navas 61' - Fluid football from Newcastle! Guimaraes is found in the area after a neat passage of play, and the Brazilian fires a firmly-hit effort on goal. It's too close for the keeper though, and Navas acrobatically tips the attempt over for a corner. 21:19 Gibbs-White booked 60' - Gibbs-White picks up a yellow card after a poor challenge in the centre of the park. 21:18 Shelvey fires wide 59' - Forest's corner falls to Shelvey on the edge of the area.

The ex-Newcastle man chests the ball down before firing an effort on goal, which edges narrowly wide. 21:17 Freuler replaces Yates 58' - Forest lose a warrior in midfield as Yates makes way through injury. Freuler comes on to replace him. 21:16 Stoppage 57' - Yates goes down holding his shoulder and the physios rush on to assess him. 21:15 Forest livening up 55' - Forest begin to grasp a foothold in the second half, as Gibbs-White finds enough room on the right to whip a ball towards Dennis at the back post.

Unfortunately for the home supporters, his cross is overhit and goes behind for a goal kick. 21:11 Lodi fouled 52' - Isak catches Lodi late and gives away a free-kick after the left-back gets to the ball first, but he manages to evade further punishment. 21:09 Succession of corners 50' - Newcastle continue to pile on the pressure with a succession of corners, but Forest manage to deal with Trippier's dangerous deliveries. 21:08 Early impact from Anderson 48' - Substitute Anderson puts the burners on and chases a long ball from the goalkeeper, outpacing both Trippier and Felipe to recover the ball. Moments later, the youngster uses superb technique to thump a volley on target, which is parried over by Navas.

21:06 Free-kick Newcastle 47' - Felipe chops down Willock after a fast start from Newcastle. The visitors seem to have come out with a point to prove. 21:04 SECOND HALF Isak kicks off the second half for Newcastle. Meanwhile, Anderson comes for the Magpies as Saint-Maximin makes way. 20:49 HALF TIME A huge moment at the end of the half as Isak claws Newcastle back into the game.

They've lacked clinical finishing this season but not on this occasion. That really was a superbly-taken goal from the Swede. It's a bitter blow for Forest after a strong 45 minutes but they'll feel they can hurt the Magpies in the second-half. Stay tuned for more action after the break. 20:48 GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle 45+2 - Isak equalises just before the break! Trippier threads through Willock on the right flank, and the midfielder dinks a ball over the Forest defenders towards Isak at the back post.

The Swede volleys home with an improvised effort to draw Newcastle level just before the break. 1-1! 20:46 Three minutes added time 20:44 Clash of heads 43' - The referee blows up after a clash of heads between Ayew and Guimaraes. 20:40 Wilson warming up 39' - Howe sends Wilson to warm up on the touchline ahead of half-time. Looks like we'll see his introduction shortly should Newcastle fail to find an equaliser quickly. 20:36 Longstaff off the bar! 35' - So close from Longstaff! Murphy gets the better of Lodi on the right wing and drives a low cross towards just outside the penalty area.

Longstaff picks up the ball and fires a shot on goal, his deflected effort crashing of the crossbar and back into play. Is it going to be one of those days for Newcastle? 20:31 Shelvey escapes booking 30' - Forest have their tails up here and are flying into every tackle. Shelvey lunges in on Guimaraes on the halfway line and manages to avoid a booking, much to the annoyance of the Newcastle contingent inside the City Ground. 20:27 GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-0 Newcastle 26' - A terrible error from Newcastle! Botman passes the ball back towards Pope and doesn't see Dennis coming across from the left-hand side. The forward picks up the ball, takes it around the goalkeeper and coolly slots his effort into the Magpies' net with a sublime chip.

1-0 Forest! 20:23 Dennis booked 22' - Paul Tierney causes a chorus of boos around the City Ground as he blows up while Forest launch a counter-attack, penalising Dennis for a challenge on Trippier. The referee becomes even more unpopular as he books the forward after the tackle. 20:20 Wasteful from Aurier 20' - Forest carve out a fruitful period of possession and find Aurier in a promising position on the right flank, but the full-back overhits his cross and hands Newcastle a goal kick. 20:18 Pope denies Johnson 18' - Johnson cuts inside on to his left foot from the right flank and drills a long-distance effort down the throat of Pope. 20:16 Good pressure from Newcastle 15' - Guimaraes and Willock are linking up well and keeping Newcastle deep in Forest territory at the moment.

The home side are doing well to hold off wave after wave of attack from Newcastle, but the visitors are looking very lively. 20:13 HOW did that not go in?! 12' - Clever free-kick from Newcastle nearly pays off! Trippier threads the ball under the wall towards Isak, who fires an effort on goal inside the penalty box, but his shot ricochets off Aurier and Lodi before striking the crossbar. Forest survive by the barest of margins! 20:11 Willock and Yates lock horns 9' - Yates and Willock are already clashing in midfield, as the Forest man chops the Newcastle star down early on. Moments later, Yates charges at Willock to barge him off the pitch and win a throw, and there's a bit of afters as the pair push each other on the touchline. Passionate start from the midfielders.

20:07 BIG chance for WIllock! 6' - Trippier releases Murphy on the right flank and the winger drills a ball into the area in the direction of Willock. The ball falls to the midfielder's left foot and he flashes his effort high and wide, squandering the opportunity. Newcastle have got to start burying these sorts of chances...

20:06 Schar carries on 5' - Schar gets back to his feet in the hope of returning but is obviously still in considerable pain following Ayew's tackle. It looks like he's going to continue for now... 20:04 Schar down 3' - Ayew makes a rash challenge from behind on Schar and is somewhat fortunate to evade a booking.

The Swiss centre-back stays down as the referee blows for a stoppage in play. 20:02 Shelvey making his presence felt 2' - Trippier and Guimaraes link up well early on and Shelvey gets stuck in early, chopping down the Brazilian and giving away a free-kick on the halfway line. 20:01 KICK OFF Johnson gets things underway for Nottingham Forest at the City Ground 19:58 The players grace the pitch Both teams take to the City Ground stage ready to lock horns.

Checking in at the City Ground πŸ’« pic. β€” Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) March 17, 2023 Evening, @NavasKeylor πŸ‘‹πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· β€” Nottingham Forest FC (@NFFC) March 17, 2023 18:45 The state of play Newcastle returned to winning ways last weekend with a 2-1 win over Wolves, bouncing back after three successive defeats to Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool. The Magpies endured the upset of a Carabao Cup final defeat during that run but will hope the disappointment is now behind them, as Eddie Howe focuses on launching them into Europe next season.

Newcastle have two games in hand over Tottenham, who are four points ahead of them in fourth, and a two point buffer over Liverpool. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest are one of nine teams faced with the threat of relegation, although Steve Cooper has done well to steer his club out of immediate danger thus far. Forest have a two-point cushion above the relegation zone and have picked up most of their points at home this season, unbeaten in the league at the City Ground in their last nine matches.

The Premier League has returned after the thrills and spills of European action this week, which saw Manchester City thump seven past RB Leipzig in the Champions League and Arsenal crash out of the Europa League on penalties. The European dream is still very much alive for Eddie Howe's side next season, although there is little room for error with Tottenham and Liverpool both firmly in the race for fourth spot. Newcastle can go within a point of Tottenham with a win, while Nottingham Forest can jump five points clear of the relegation zone with victory.
