Sammy Ameobi admits Newcastle United’s youngsters didn't expect to see so much action so soon.
Ameobi said: “It’s been great to get my chance to play but I can’t lie — it feels slightly different to a few weeks ago.
“Back then I was getting my chance and everyone was on a high. I was playing well but we’ve hit a wall — we’re not new kids on the block any more.
“We could make mistakes and no one came down on us. But now we’re starting to learn that we have to affect games.”
