Newcastle United striker Leon Best is gunning for Carling Cup rivals Nottingham Forest.

Best starred for Trent rivals Notts County as a youth player between 2002 and 2004 before joining Southampton and then moving on to Coventry.

He told the Evening Chronicle: “I am a County boy – I have always had an affinity with some Magpies! I used to watch Forest as well, I was a big admirer of Stan Collymore, but I was mainly a County fan.

“I was at Notts County as a kid and the reds are my enemy.”
