Newcastle United striker Sammy Ameobi scored his first goal for the club deep into extra-time as the Magpies booked their place in the third round of the League Cup at the expense of Scunthorpe United.
Despite the home side taking the lead through Chris Dagnall’s 14th minute opener, the Premier League side battled back firstly through Ryan Taylor, before Ameobi, younger brother of fellow Newcastle striker Shola, sealed the win in the 113th minute.
“I’ve been saying privately he (Sammy) could threaten a place in this first team,” said Newcastle manager Alan Pardew.
“He had a couple of cameos at Chelsea at the back end of last season, he’s got a great brother who will keep his feet on the ground and great parents.
“He was terrific tonight and it was a fabulous goal. He’s a different player to his brother – his feet are electric at times.”
