Aina stars in Nottingham Forest’s win at Newcastle

Ola Aina put up a good performance as Nottingham Forest defeated Newcastle United 3-1 at the St James’ Park on Tuesday afternoon though he was responsible for the Magpies early penalty which was converted by Alexander Isak in the 23rd minute.

Aina was in action for 90 minutes in the thrilling contest.

He has scored once in 13 league outings for Forest this season.

The visitors fought back with Chris Wood netting a hat-trick.

Newcastle United have now won only one of their last seven games across all competitions.

The Magpies will face Liverpool in their next Premier League game on New Year’s Day.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will host Manchester United at the City Ground on Saturday.
