After scoring four goals last weekend and only coming away with a single point against Luton Town, Newcastle will be glad they managed to avoid the same fate against Nottingham Forest.

The win moves the Magpies up the Premier League table to seventh as they inch closer the qualifying spots for European competition.

Bruno Guimaraes again showed how important he is to Eddie Howe's side, with two superb finishes to get Newcastle over the line.

Concerns over Newcastle's defence remain and they looked vulnerable on the left with Anthony Elanga easily outpacing Dan Burn.

Despite this, Newcastle are thriving away from St James' Park and have now won four straight games on the road. The last time they did that in the top flight was when Sir Bobby Robson was in charge.
