Shola Ameobi insists there is no pressure on the Magpies to secure a UEFA Champions League spot.
Shola Ameobi: "We're excited.
"The last five games are a different proposition. The sky's the limit for us - there's no pressure at all.
"I think you can see that when we go out on the pitch.
"There are a lot of very good teams above us who probably think they deserve the Champions League spot more than we do.
"It's who can get out from these next five games on top.
"It's about who can manage their expectations, and go out and execute what they have to do.
"Like I said, we've got no pressure on ourselves. We want to play in Europe. That's what we want - European football.
"People talk about the Champions League, but let's focus on the next game, and making sure we stay in a European spot.
"That's as far as we want to look.
"If we get more than that, great, but what want to do is secure European football."
