Newcastle striker Demba Ba undaunted by Shearer pressure

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba insists he's undaunted by the expectation Geordies have of their attacking stars.

While United may no longer have big-name stars such as Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand and Tino Asprilla, the current crop of strikers have a chance to make a name for themselves.

And former West Ham United man Ba told the Evening Chronicle: "I knew about the history here and the names of the past.

"It does not daunt me. I am a striker so I want to score goals anyway."
