Shola and Emre to play again

Some vital match practice at last for out-of-favour Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi. Ameobi has been left out in the cold for much of the season but new Toon boss Kevin Keegan wants him to resume his usual activities and pull himself together. Ameobi will play for United’s reserves team against Manchester City’s reserves on Monday night at St. James’ Park.

Joining Ameobi will be Emre and reserve team boss Adam Sadler says:

Both Shola and Emre will be involved. It’s fantastic that we are playing at St James’s and everybody is looking forward to it.The last couple of games have been impressive and our youngsters such as Kazenga LuaLua, Tamas Kadar, Ben Tozer and Wesley Ngo Baheng have done very well.
