Ameobi delighted to be amongst Newcastle goals

Shola Ameobi was delighted with his brace for Newcastle United in this week's friendly against Newcastle Blue Star.

Ameobi told the Evening Chronicle: "I am delighted with two goals again.

"For me it is all about match fitness and getting back into contention.

"Goals are important for my confidence, but I am just happy to be back out there."

And speaking on his hip problem, Shola added: "It is the first time I haven't felt it now.

"It has been a long road and I am finally over that now and I can just look forward to playing for Newcastle.

"I was happy to get through unscathed again and now I am ready for Aston Villa."
