Ex-Newcastle striker Martins hits winner on Levante debut

Former Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins struck a winner for Levante on debut against Real Sociedad yesterday.

Former Inter Milan and Newcastle striker Martins only formalised his move to Levante on Friday after being allowed to leave Rubin Kazan, and repaid his new employers' faith with a goal just 41 minutes after entering the action as a half-time substitute.

David Zurutuza had earlier handed visiting Sociedad a first-half lead that they held until the 70th minute when Jose Barkero levelled from the penalty spot.

And with the clock ticking down Martins pounced inside the area to lift Levante to their second win of the season and a place inside the top 10.
