Newcastle United U21 coach Willie Donachie is full of praise for the attitude of Gabriel Obertan.

Obertan turned out for Newcastle's under-21 side in front of 324 hardy souls at Whitley Park against Bolton Wanderers.

Donachie told nufcTV: "Coming down to play with lesser players is always difficult. It's easier the better players you're playing with.

"But I thought his attitude was very good - it was some of the players around him who didn't show the same consistency.

"He was outstanding for the goal and showed his class. It was difficult for Gaby and I was pleased with him."
