Bruno Guimaraes of Newcastle United celebrates with Fabian ScharGuimaraes scored two goals in a game for the first time since October 2022

Bruno Guimaraes' sublime second-half strike helped Newcastle United to a 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest in a lively Premier League encounter.

Forest twice fought back from behind with Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi cancelling out goals from Guimaraes and Fabian Schar.

But Guimaraes secured the three points for the visitors with a brilliant finish in the 66th minute.

Defeat for Forest leaves them just two points clear of the relegation zone.

After a dramatic 4-4 draw against Luton Town the previous weekend, Eddie Howe's side played out another thrilling game at the City Ground - this time coming out on top to move up to seventh in the Premier League standings.

Newcastle pulled off a clever short corner routine to go ahead in the 10th minute, with Kieran Tripper whipping a fierce ball to the back post where Guimaraes had timed his arrival to perfection to poke home the volley.

The atmosphere around the stadium improved drastically when Morgan Gibbs-White threaded a well-weighted ball through the centre of the pitch and Elanga outpaced Newcastle's defenders to slot it past Martin Dubravka.

In a first half full of momentum shifts, Newcastle restored their lead as Schar met Sven Botman's header on the half-volley, firing it back across goal and into the bottom left corner.

Again Forest responded, with Hudson-Odoi's strike from 20 yards out taking a big deflection off Lewis Miley to wrong-foot Dubravka.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side may feel hard done by after referee Anthony Taylor waved away two penalty appeals, first for a light shove on Elanga by Anthony Gordon and then for Dubravka's outstretched arms bringing down Taiwo Awoniyi.
