Marveaux urges Newcastle pal Cisse to drop late show

Sylvain Marveaux has told Newcastle United teammate Papiss Cisse to start scoring earlier in games.

Sylvain Marveaux has told Newcastle United teammate Papiss Cisse to start scoring earlier in games.

The Senegal striker has found the net in the Toon’s last three home games, with all the goals coming deep into injury-time.

“We’d like him to score earlier in the game,” said midfielder Marveaux.

“I don’t know how he does it, but Papiss has left it so late recently.

“But that was a ­massive goal and a massive win against Fulham because we put everything into the game.

“Maybe it’s the sign of a good team that we’re scoring so many late goals.”
