Newcastle United winger Sammy Ameobi hopes for a Capital One Cup start tonight.
The Toon will meet Leeds United.
Ameobi told the Evening Chronicle: â€œIt is really frustrating when you are on the bench and you canâ€™t do anything about it.
â€œNow we have the opportunity to play and make the difference. This is a massive opportunity to stake a claim. I enjoy playing with Paul (Dummett) and we work well together.
â€œItâ€™s going to be a massive game and Iâ€™m looking forward to it.
â€œIt is another opportunity to play again. Iâ€™m going to stake a claim."
