Pic Special: Blackpool 0 Newcastle 1

Shola Ameobi's early, acrobatic strike earned Newcastle United a 1-0 victory away at Blackpool in their latest pre-season friendly on Sunday.

The long-serving front man superbly angled home an effort into the far corner with less than five minutes on the clock and that proved to be the difference between the sides at Bloomfield Road.

It was a real game of two halves, with the Magpies dominating the first period and Sylvain Marveaux, Steven Taylor, Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko all going close to extending their advantage.

But Blackpool hit back after the break, with Thomas Ince particularly impressive, and United had to be extremely resolute defensively to earn their first clean sheet of their warm-up games to date.
