Rolando Aarons’ performance against Nottingham Forest was one of the few positives to take from another disappointing cup exit on Tyneside.
Newcastle were hoping for a much-needed confidence boost in the Carabao Cup following back-to-back league defeats, but the Championship side had other ideas, leaving St James’ Park with their place assured in the third round. Making ten changes, Rafa Benitez handed Aarons his first start in an injury plagued year, and the young attacker repaid his faith with an encouraging performance. A metatarsal fracture, followed by a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury, effectively ended his 2016/17 campaign and now Aarons is keen to make up for lost time. A goal and an assist on the night, must surely be enough to force his way into Rafa’s thinking as a disjoined Newcastle side go in search of their first league points. Aarons will be assessed ahead of Saturday after he was forced off late on: "I think it was cramp, so I think he’s okay." Thu, Aug 24, 2017 05:49:00 AM
