Viduka said: "I am just starting to get a good taste of what it is like to play for Newcastle United, which is a massive club with big potential.

"I would love to be in Kevin Keegan's starting line-up every week and that's what I am working towards."

The Australian striker is ready for this weekend's Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland and added: "I came back into the Newcastle side for our game at Sunderland in November and the atmosphere reminded me of an Old Firm game.

"But I am expecting it to be even bigger on Sunday, which is really a massive game for both teams.

"There will be so much emotion and passion and that's what everybody wants to be a part of.

"I can remember scoring both home and away against Sunderland in my first season at Leeds United but I can't remember scoring against them since then, and that's something I will be looking to put right on Sunday."
