Fabian Schär’s rocket and Callum Wilson’s delicious chip seal all three points for Newcastle over Nottingham Forest…
- Newcastle recorded a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon

- Steve Cooper’s Forest struggled for possession in their Premier League return
Nottingham Forest were defeated in their return to the Premier League after goals from Fabian Schär and Callum Wilson secured all three points for Newcastle.
There wasn’t much to separate the two sides in the first half, but the Magpies drove ahead in the second as Schär’s strike broke the stalemate in the 58th minute – before Wilson slumped 20 minutes later.
Steve Cooper’s newly formed squad will hope their luck is different when they host West Ham next Sunday.
