Steve Cooper’s Forest struggled on his return to the Prem and was second best at St James’ Park for the most part.

Forest managed to breaklevel pegging through magic from Schar until just before the hour mark.

The guests picked up the ball outside the penalty area and couldn’t close the defender.

And the Swiss centre-back made Forest pay by firing a superb shot into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Callum Wilson doubled Toon’s lead with 12 minutes remaining by poking home a cross from Joelinton to send the home fans wild.
