Another Newcastle game on the move over Christmas

Newcastle's Sky Bet Championship clash with Nottingham Forest has been moved back to Friday December 30.

The game, which was originally due to be held on New Year's Eve, has been rescheduled with a 19.45 kick-off the day before to avoid potential transport issues due to a parade in the city centre.

It is the fifth Magpies fixture to be moved over Christmas with trips to Forest, Wigan and Blackburn, and a home game against Sheffield Wednesday all selected for live television coverage.
