EPL: Isak Braces Newcastle Utd Past Nottingham Forest, In Sight Of Top Four

Alexander Isak's two goals, including a stoppage-time penalty, sealed the win for Newcastle United over Nottingham Forest which takes them just one point below fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Newcastle United's dream of making it to next season's Champions League is alive and kicking after their recent win against Nottingham Forest.

After a two-month wait for a Premier League win, Newcastle's back-to-back victories have lifted them up the table and within reach of their European ambitions. Isak, who has been a key player for the team this season, was in top form and confident about their chances.

"We believe and we know that we have it in our own hands and have a good chance," he said after the match. "It is important we have gone into this break with a good feeling with two wins from two games."

The victory was a crushing blow for Nottingham Forest, who suffered their first home defeat in the league since September. The loss leaves them just two points above the relegation zone.

"We made some poor football decisions around the build-up to the goals and that's something we can only blame ourselves for," said Forest coach Steve Cooper.

The game had its share of controversies, with a goal disallowed by VAR for offside against Newcastle's Sean Longstaff. However, Isak's penalty ensured that the Magpies would take home all three points and maintain their momentum heading into the international break.

"It's a massive win and I thought we deserved it," said Newcastle manager Eddie Howe. "To come back is always a great way to win and the character shown in the group is very pleasing."
