Newcastle 2-0 Nottingham Forest: Fabian Schar’s rocket and Callum Wilson’s delectable chip seal all three points for the Magpies… as Steve Cooper’s team suffer defeat in their return to the Premier League
- Newcastle recorded a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon
- Fabian Schar opened the score with a thumping long-range attack
- Before Callum Wilson ended the afternoon with a delicious chip
- 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 Schar 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 Schar’s strike broke the deadlock in the 58th minute – before Wilson was in the bag 20 minutes later.
Steve Cooper’s newly built squad will hope their luck is different when they host West Ham next Sunday.
