Shola Ameobi returned from injury to fire Newcastle to within touching distance of the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Ameobi, who replaced the injured Andy Carroll four minutes after the break, blasted home a 71st-minute drive, and Jose Enrique's first goal for the club in injury time all but killed off Nottingham Forest's hopes of automatic promotion.

Victory at Peterborough on Saturday would be enough to secure promotion if third-placed Forest, who have now lost their last eight away games, extended that to nine at Bristol City with the Magpies 13 points better off having played a game fewer.
