The Nigerian forward’s goal came against the run of play with Newcastle having the lion’s share of possession and shots.
But it took just one long ball to throw the Toon defence into disarray as Forest pressure saw them force an error from Botman.
Viewers rushed to social media to comment on the costly error.
One user said: “STUNNING DENNIS GOAL Amazing chip from Forest forward. The audacity of the idea.
“The perfection of the execution. A modern Dennis… Bergkamp?”
A second said: “Great assist from Sven Botman .”
A furious fantasy team boss declared: “Botman robbed of the assist.”
“I only have Botman for his goal threat anyway,” admitted a fourth.

A fifth commented: “Botman assist at the wrong end of the pitch.”
Newcastle’s Champions League hopes are on the line against Forest’s desire to stay in the Premier League.
A win for Steve Cooper’s side will see them move five points above the drop zone, while a win for Eddie Howe’s men will move them within two points of the top four.
