Newcastle United co-owner Amanda Staveley delivers her verdict on the 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest.

Amanda Staveley was "so proud" of Newcastle United following their 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest on Saturday night.

The Magpies headed to the City Ground after drawing 4-4 against relegation-threatened Luton Town at St James' Park last week but swiftly returned to winning ways.

Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes was on the scoresheet twice, first opening the scoring in the 10th minute before finding the winner midway through the second-half. The scoreline was level at half-time after Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi netted either wide of Fabian Schar's strike.

Reacting to the result on Instagram, Staveley said: "Amazing performance today. So proud, as always, of this team. They keep showing up and today they bring home 3 points 🖤🤍 #howaythelads."

As well as Staveley, the result meant a great deal to Eddie Howe. At full-time, the United head coach released his emotion in front of the travelling away fans with a uncharacteristic fist pump.

"That was because they haven't had many positive moments away from home, not as many as we would have liked," Howe explained. We appreciate and value their support so it was a big win for us today and hopefully we can look forward to next week at home.

"It means everything to all of us. We give so much in our preparation to win matches, the supporters give so much to travel and watch us play. At times this season we've not given them the reward that we want to so when we do it's nice to celebrate it."

Howe welcomes former club Bournemouth to St James' Park on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).
