Taylor And Colocccini Both Out – Simpson At Center-Back


Nottingham Forest   .svgnufc-crest

Both Steven Taylor (hamstring) and Fabricio Coloccini (groin) are out of topnight’s game at Nottingham Forest.

Zurab Khizanishvili will now partner Danny Simpson at the heart of the Newcastle defense with Ryan Taylor and Jose Enrique occupying the full-back berths.

Since Jonas Gutierrez only arrived back from his Argentine exploits on Friday afternoon, he is named among the substitutes, but will be expected to play some part in the second half.

Peter Lovenkrands comes in on the wing, and Andy Carroll is restored to the attack alongside former Forest star Marlon Harewood.

TEAMS

Nottingham Forest: Lee Camp, Wes Morgan, Kelvin Wilson, Paul Anderson, Nathan Tyson, Chris Cohen, Chris Gunter, Paul McKenna (c), Guy Moussi, Dexter Blackstock, Radoslaw Majewski
Subs: Luke Chambers, Lewis McGugan, Dele Adebola, Garath McCleary, Joe Garner, David McGoldrick, Paul Smith

Newcastle United: Steve Harper, Ryan Taylor, Danny Simpson, Zurab Khizanishvili, Jose Enrique, Danny Guthrie, Alan Smith (c), Kevin Nolan, Peter Lovenkrands, Andy Carroll, Marlon Harewood
Subs: Tim Krul, Tamas Kadar, Nicky Butt, Geremi, Ryan Donaldson, Nile Ranger, Jonas Gutierrez

Referee: P Taylor
Attendance: tbc

    Funny MacTooon, maybe everyones gone to the match. What do you think of the starting lineup today. I gotta say the heart of the defence could be a problem today, i think Blackstock and Tyson might cause us problems in the air.

    Bru, that’s why I gave them 1 goal but I’d still like to think we’d be able to score a couple atleast.

    QPR are lookin a good side this season, in particular Wayne Routledge on the right wing, pity we didn’t have any money to spend ’cause he would be ideal for us.

    I’m glad to see Carroll playing but not sure with Loven, more like a 4-3-3, thought Harewood was meant to be injured too.

    Well we’ll see how we continue with Smith as captain, I hope he does well again.

    Lets hope Guthrie has found his form during the international break, ’cause he has been pretty poor in recent matches.

    Dave, I heard some were getting sick of all the advertising rubbish here, maybe the anti-KK threads and digs chased some away too.

    I hate Steve Bruce and Sir Bobby Chalton. Steve chose his name to be sang by the makems and Chalton decided to forget where his home is never even comes back for charity.

    I hate them both of them.

    All I need is a win. 3 points Howay Lads & Lasses.

    Sounds like another stinker on the cards today….creating nothing so far for the strikers.

    Jaqui Oately is doing the commentary she is woeful and I might switch it off shortly-just waffles about 5hite and gets on my tits.

    SS commentators arent much better

    I think its obvious we lack width. We need wide men. Guthrie isnt a winger and McLoven should be up top wiith the hare

    Best move of our match so far, should have back heeled it back to Nolan though for a strike on goal need some more confidence in front of goal
