Newcastle to win and both teams to score @ 11/5

Both sides are struggling for form but Newcastle should prove the stronger of the two - they're a completely different outfit at home compared to on their travels.

The hosts have won eight of their nine home league games this term, while Forest have lost six of their last seven league games. However, Newcastle head into this game with just two clean sheets across their last 11, so back Forest to score in a defeat days after a 3-2 home loss to Bournemouth.


Anthony Gordon to score anytime @ 15/8

Despite injury concerns, Gordon featured in the defeat against Luton, and he can continue a great campaign with a goal against Forest.

The winger has found plenty of joy at St James' Park - he's scored five of his six league games at home, while he has found the net in four of their last five league matches on Tyneside.
