Newcastle strikers Shola
Ameobi and younger brother Sammy will likely be in action as they welcome Belgian
side Club Brugge at the Sport Direct Arena in a Group D fixture of the EUROPA
League group phase tie scheduled to take place on Thursday.
Shola Ameobi is yet to score in all his five appearances for the Toons this season and he might fancy getting his first goal at the Thursday encounter.
It would seems the 31year-old player’s chances of getting regular playing time might have been hampered by the continuous exchange of form between Senegalese duo of Demba Ba and Papis Cisse.
Sammy Ameobi, on the other hand has only been in the fray of things for Newcastle on just one occasion and might get possibly get a look in from team manager, Alan Pardew to get probably get a shot at UEFA Cup glory.
Alan Pardew will field a strong Newcastle United team, including Cheik Tiote against Club Brugge. Tiote, suspended for the club’s next three Premier League games after his dismissal in the Wear-Tyne derby, will start the Europa League group match.
-I have a team in my mind for Brugge. It will be very similar to the one selected to play Bordeaux. That’s the best clue I can give you, Pardew told reporters at Newcastle.
