NEWCASTLE took the lead three times against Nottingham Forest as Bruno Guimaraes sealed the points.
The midfielder scored a superb volley to open the scoring at the City Ground before Anthony Elanga equalised with his fifth Premier League goal of the season.
The visitors dominated possession and had their fair share of chances before retaking the lead through Fabian Schar.
It appeared Newcastle would hold a 2-1 lead at half-time but Callum Hudson-Odoi pounced in the sixth minute of stoppage time to level the contest.
Forest then thought they had a chance to take the lead as Taiwo Awoniyi went down in the box, but referee Anthony Taylor overturned his decision to award a penalty after consulting the VAR monitor.
Minutes later Toon went up the other end as Guimaraes brilliantly intercepted a loose pass before bending a winner beyond goalkeeper Matz Sels.
