Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle United match highlights and match facts.

September 21st, 2011 | 61 Comments |

Match highlights from yesterday evening’s nailbiting 3-4 thriller against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup.

Features two goals from Peter Lovenkrands. The first featuring an astounding pass from comeback kid, Hatem Ben Arfa, and a pretty tidy assist from his French compadre Sylvain Marveaux too. The third was an almost certain cross which ended up in the goal from Danny Simpson, and finally, the “Coup de grâce” in the dying seconds of extra time from the head of Captain Coloccini.

Also features the three Nottingham Forest goals from Finley, Derbyshire and Tudgay.

Apologies for the slightly wobbly nature of the videocam highlights. As you probably know, TV coverage of this game was none existent so it’s a case of “any port in a storm” this time. I will keep my eyes peeled, and should anyhting better show up, I will replace it. Thanks by the way to ironically named site user, “Free Scoring Smudge” for pointing this out.

Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United, League Cup.
Third away trip in a row.
Venue: City Ground, Nottingham
Date: Tuesday, Sept 20th, 2011
Kick-off: 7:45pm
Referee: Lee Mason

Hello, good evening and welcome to NUFC Blog’s match banter feature for this evening’s League Cup encounter with Nottingham Forest at their place.

Forest have been struggling of late under former England manager and Dutch accent specialist, Steve “Wally with the brolly” McClaren, with the former double European cup winners languishing in the bottom three of the Championship table. However, before we get arrogant, it should not be forgotten that League One relegation candidates, Scunthorpe, really gave we Magpies a run for our money in the last round of this competition, with only an extra time goal separating the the sides in what was a very close contest. Don’t forget that for a more in depth look at the upcoming game, you can always check out Jimbob’s excellent match preview.

Irons in the fire at Glanford Park.
Irons in the fire at Glanford Park.
Venue: Glanford Park, Scunthorpe.
Date: Thursday, 25 August.
Kick-off: 7:45PM.
Referee: Graham Salisbury.

Scunthorpe united await the Magpies this Thursday night as the two sides meet at Glanford Park in the League Cup second round.

The match is scheduled for live broadcasting via Sky Sports 1, kick-off is at 7.45pm (BST). Graham Sailsbury is the man in the middle. Hopefully,  Alan Parry won’t be  Sky commentator for the game, simply because I find his voice annoying. We shall see…

The tie must finish on the night, with 30 minutes extra time to decide the match if the scores are still level after 90 minutes. If after extra time there is no winner, the game will be decided by penalties. We all love a good penalty shoot-out, don’t we?

You may remember our last visit to the Irons during our 2009-2010 championship season, where United lost the match 2-1. Kevin Nolan was on target for us that night. (more…)
