Nottingham Forest have revealed their ticket sales for the game at Newcastle on Wednesday night.
The Forest fans have had plenty to say before the match but in terms of those actually bothering to travel, their club says less than a thousand have committed so far.
By Monday Nottingham Forest had sold just over 900 tickets (see below) and then on Tuesdayy lunchtime they confirmed that had risen to ‘approaching one thousand’.
Interesting to see what the crowd will be from a Newcastle perspective.
Obviously supporters gutted at the stance taken by Mike Ashley but this hasn’t stopped fans staying behind Rafa Benitez and his players.
Spurs was a sell out, Huddersfield away quickly went, then West Ham on Saturday is already sold out.
Remember, tickets are £10 and £5 (concessions) at the moment but if you wait until Wednesday they double in price.
Newcastle fans will be interested to see how the likes of Jacob Murphy and Rolando Aarons get on, as well as wondering whether Rafa will play Mitro or Joselu…or both!
Not a great choice in terms of defenders though, unless the United boss brings a few (Haidara, Hanley etc) out of the wilderness.
