Nottm Forest   1 - 0   Newcastle

Nottm Forest 1-0 Newcastle

Nottm Forest 1-0 Newcastle

A Dexter Blackstock strike on the stroke of half-time gave Forest a slender victory at the City Ground.

It was a fourth successive win for Forest, who dominated the first-half, Blackstock denied by keeper Steve Harper before heading against a post.

Former Forest man Marlon Harewood also hit the woodwork but Blackstock opened the scoring by beating the offside trap and lifting over the advancing Harper.

Kevin Nolan had an effort ruled out for offside as Forest held on.


Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies:

"I thought we were excellent in the first half and could have been two or three goals to the good.

"But Newcastle showed what a good side they are after half-time and also showed us what we have to aspire to.

"Compared to them we are very much a work in progress but I am very proud of the way my players are maturing and developing.

"We gave the ball away too many times in the second half and by shooting ourselves in the foot it might have cost us. We were on the back foot for too long but we showed a lot of character to hang in there and protect the lead we had earned."

Newcastle boss Chris Hughton:
"We paid the price for a poor first-half performance when they were much better than us.

"I just wanted to get the players in without conceding a goal and see if we could change and improve things.

"But Forest scoring just before half-time left us with a bigger challenge and although we responded to it, we just could not get the break.

"We knew how difficult it would be because they have been on an excellent run but we were looking to get something.

"It's not pleasant to be leaving here without something but we are still at the end of the table where we want to be."
