Gabriel Obertan's first goal of the season maintained Newcastle's Europa League challenge as the Ameobi brothers joined forces to see off Club Brugge 1-0 at home.

Shola, 31, and 20-year-old Sammy combined in breathtaking style three minutes into the second half to set up the Frenchman to secure the narrowest of victories.

Alan Pardew's men were made to fight all the way as the Pro League leaders gave a good account of themselves, but they made it to the final whistle without mishap to take their Group D points tally to a satisfactory seven from three games and leave themselves on the brink of qualification for the last 32.
