Alan Shearer: "Let's face it he wouldn't be in the side if Mark Viduka, Oba Martins and Shola Ameobi were fit.

"But he's been given a great chance.

"He had an earlier chance but to his credit he wasn't afraid to go in and miss again.

"But it was a great header and he earned Newcastle a point.

"To see a youngster come through from the ranks is great."
