Newcastle travel to Nottingham for tomorrow night’s game at the City Ground in the League (Carabao) Cup.
The rules have changed a little this season, and if the scores are level after 90 minutes, they go straight to penalties.
So we wonder how many games will end up decided by penalties in this second round of games?
Forest beat us 3-2 at the same stage of the competition at St. James’ Park a year ago so we hope we can get through this time.
Sean Longstaff – local lad could start this game tomorrow
It would be very disappointing if we get knocked out of these cup competition in the early rounds.
But Rafa is prioritizing Premier League survival again this season, and he will give opportunities to some of our fringe players in this game.
20-year-old central midfield player Sean Longstaff could get a game tomorrow night in addition to 22-year-old right-back Jamie Sterry – both local lads.
Forest are in 13th position in the Championship having taken 7 points from their first 5 games – four draws and one win – so they are unbeaten.
