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

"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."
