Rafa Benitez has just named his side for the difficult game at Nottingham Forest tonight at the City Ground and it’s a strong side with four changes made from the side that started at Hull City on Tuesday night.

In come Karl Darlow, DeAndre Yedlin, Paul Dummett and Ayoze Perez for Sels, Anita, Lazaar and Diame.
We had Diame in for Perez in our side so we were one player off.
This is a really important game tonight and we really need the win and all 3 points.
This what manager Rafa Benitez has said about the game tonight:
“Forest are an offensive team and they are dangerous when they attack.” “They are also exposed when they are attacking because they leave space behind.”
“That is always a challenge for us.” “We’ve done well away and we are not conceding any goals.”
“Hopefully we can be as strong as we have been in the past, keep attacking and scoring goals – that’s the perfect balance.”
“We know that it will be tough and we have to be ready after playing extra time and penalties so soon.”
The ratio of fans who think we can win this game is down considerably compared with our most recent league games.
