There were no goals but plenty of talking points when Newcastle took on Maritimo on Thursday night.

United hit the woodwork three times - first through Shola Ameobi, who headed against a post, then through Dan Gosling whose long-range strike shaved the same stanchion.

Ameobi's curling shot after a great run completed the unwanted hat-trick but at the other end the Portuguese outfit created chances too.

Rob Elliot made four great saves while Davide Santon's amazing goal-line clearance was vital as the Magpies opened up their Europa League Group D campaign with a very useful point.
