Nottingham Forest's 23-year wait for Premier League football comes to an end on Saturday, and will do so at one of the top flight's iconic grounds as they travel up to St James' Park to face Newcastle United.

The Reds' rise under Steve Cooper has been a remarkable one, with the Welshman taking over the City Ground outfit when they were bottom of the table last September and leading them to promotion via a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the play-off final.

They've been busy since, bringing in 12 new players and spending more than £70 million as they look to give Cooper the squad he needs to extend their stay in the Premier League beyond just one season.

Indeed, few will have expected the newly-promoted side to outspend Newcastle in what is the first summer transfer window since the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia's club takeover.

There is still a month to go in the window but The Magpies have only made three new signings so far, bringing in Matt Targett, Sven Botman, and Nick Pope.

But continuity will be no bad thing for a side that finished the 2021/22 season with such a flourish, and Eddie Howe will still be looking up the table rather than down after his team's 11th-place finish.

His optimism will be shared by the Toon Army, who will no doubt be packing St James' Park on Saturday for the season opener.

Our prediction: Newcastle v Nottingham Forest

Saturday is a day that Nottingham Forest fans have been dreaming of for a long, long time as their team returns to the promised land.

You can't help but worry when a newly-promoted club really splashes the cash, but there is no denying that Cooper's side needed work and with the Welsh coach at the helm, they may just shock a few people this term.

That could well start at St James' Park in a game that we can expect to be open and entertaining. Newcastle go into the game as deserved favourites but it would not be a huge surprise to see them come out of it with just one point.

Our prediction: Newcastle 2-2 Nottingham Forest (20/1 at bet365)
