"It was nice to score knowing Kevin Keegan was watching.
"It was a great occasion for the lads playing at St James's Park and everybody really enjoyed it.
"In the end I think we were unlucky not to get the win.
"All I have to do is keep my head down and keep on working hard.
"The aim is to keep on scoring goals at this level and hopefully between now and the end of the season I will get a chance in the first team."
