Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is ready to hand more first team chances to Shola Ameobi.

Pardew is keen to emphasise the importance of Ameobi.

He told the Evening Chronicle: “It’s only because we’ve got two strikers in Ba and Cisse – who you’d like to think will be a good combination – which is keeping him out.

“But he’ll get opportunities – he’s been fantastic for us.”
