Newcastle striker Cisse delighted with scoring run

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse was delighted with his brace in their draw at Swansea City.

The Senegal striker repeated his two-goal show against Hull on September 20 when he came on for the final 20 minutes. Cisse has now scored more Premier League goals than during the whole of last season, when he was very much in the shadow of the on-loan Loic Remy.

"It's just like I woke up for this because at the moment I'm enjoying my football," Cisse said.

"My one objective is to come back and score my goals. This is my job and I'm happy to score four goals in three games.

"The Premier League is not easy, it is very, very hard.

"But we just have to keep going because it's not finished yet and it can come good for us.

"I know this is not three points, but one point in Swansea is not bad and we will hard to get up the table."
