Sylvain Marveaux has staked his claim for a first Barclays Premier League start with two goals for the club's reserves against Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.

The French winger, who has made several cameo appearances for the Toon, including a start in the Carling Cup victory over Nottingham Forest, struck twice in the second half at Leyland, to add to Sammy Ameobi's first half opener.

The strong Newcastle side also saw Dan Gosling, Danny Guthrie, Peter Lovenkrands and Shane Ferguson earn run-outs as John Carver and Steve Stone took control.


Gosling helped set up Ameobi's first after 22 minutes, with a beautiful ball to set the forward clear, before the former Everton midfielder laid on the second for Marveaux, whose left-footed shot arrowed into the corner.

Just 10 minutes later, the Magpies had their third, as Ferguson crossed for the untracked Marveaux.

The performances, particularly of Marveaux, Gosling and Steve Harper, who kept a clean sheet, would have impressed the onlooking Alan Pardew, whose side, still unbeaten in the Barclays Premier League, host Tottenham Hotspur after the international break.

As for the club's reserve side, victory over Bolton maintains their impressive start to the season, with the victory their third from their four Barclays Premier Reserve League fixtures.
