Hughton wants more from Newcastle striker Xisco

Newcastle caretaker coach Chris Hughton is hoping for more from Spanish youngster Xisco.

Xisco struck his first Premiership goal in Toon's defeat to Hull last week and Hughton said: "Xisco's goal against Hull was very much a positive for us. It allowed us to rally and have the finish we did.

"He's a smashing lad. His English is reasonably good. He's an international player, and I think the goal certainly meant a lot to him, and more for the team."
