Pic Special: Maritimo 0 Newcastle 0

It may have been goalless against Maritimo on Thursday night, but that doesn't mean United's Europa League fixture was a bore draw.

Far from it, in fact, as the visitors hit the woodwork three times through Shola Ameobi (twice) and Dan Gosling.

And at the other end, goalkeeper Rob Elliot was in fine form to keep Maritimo at bay with four excellent saves, and Davide Santon also had to make a goalline clearance to keep the Magpies' clean sheet in tact.

It was an impressive start to Newcastle's Group D campaign, and there to capture it all for nufc.co.uk in this exclusive gallery of action was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
