Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies is anticipating a "great game of football" when his men take on Newcastle this weekend.
The match will be the first time the two sides have met in more than a decade and Davies expects the biggest crowd of the season at the City Ground.
"It's a great game of football," he told the club's official website.
"It's an exciting match to look forward to, a sell-out crowd and against a club that has just come down from the Premier League and carries a Premier League squad.
"It's a great test for us - it's a great game and we're looking forward to it."
