Two teams battling at opposite ends of the table go head-to-head on Friday night when Nottingham Forest welcome Champions League-chasing Newcastle United to the City Ground.
Forest are on a five-match winless run and lost 3-1 to Spurs last time out, leaving them just two points above the relegation zone.
Newcastle finally got back to winning ways by beating Wolves 2-1, ending a run of five games without victory in all competitions and putting them four points outside the top four with two games in hand over Spurs.
Eddie Howe’s men triumphed in their first meeting of the season, when Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson were on target in a 2-0 win for Newcastle in August.
Kick-off is at 8.00pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Chiekhou Kouyate, Omar Richards, Scott McKenna and Willy Boly are close to returning after various injury problems, but Taiwo Awoniyi, Giulio Biancone and Dean Henderson are out for Forest.
Newcastle will be without Emil Krafth through injury and Joelinton through suspension, while Schar is a doubt with a head knock.

Kick-off and channel
Nottingham Forest v Newcastle kick-off is at 8.00pm GMT on Friday 17 March. It is on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event (opens in new tab) in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 3.00pm ET / 12.00pm PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
