Newcastle boss Alan Pardew predicted big things for Sammy Ameobi after he combined with brother Shola to spark a Europa League fightback against Maribor.

The 20-year-old was a key figure as the Magpies cancelled out Club Brugge's early two-goal lead to claim at point at the Jan Breydel Stadion. It was his 43rd-minute pass which 31-year-old Shola converted two minutes after Vurnon Anita had dragged the visitors back into the game on an eventful evening in Flanders, and Pardew was delighted with his contribution.

He said: "I thought they were both good tonight. We had Ameobi to Ameobi - which is almost like a song - for the second goal, which was nice. It was a great little turn from Sammy. He has just got this way of getting out of corners that I have not seen many players being able to get out of. He wriggles out of situations."
