Shola Ameobi's 14th European goal kept Newcastle's Europa League campaign on track after an eventful 2-2 draw against Club Brugge.

The 31-year-old struck from younger brother Sammy's 43rd-minute pass two minutes after Vurnon Anita had dispatched a sweet volley to cancel out the 2-0 lead Brugge had been handed on a plate during an awful start by the visitors.

The Belgians went ahead with 14 minutes gone when Ivan Trickovski embarrassed skipper Fabricio Coloccini to register the first Group D goal conceded by Newcastle, and Jesper Jorgensen doubled their advantage within five minutes with Alan Pardew's men simply not at the races.
