Pic Special: Morecambe 0 Newcastle 2

Late goals from Shola and Sammy Ameobi fired Newcastle United into the third round of the Capital One Cup with a 2-0 victory away at Morecambe on Wednesday night.

The Magpies had to wait until the final six minutes to secure their place in the hat for the next stage of the competition as first, Shola fired home from the edge of the area with the aid of a deflection, and then Sammy netted with a composed breakaway finish in stoppage time.

It was no more than the visitors deserved for a dominant second half performance but they were given a first-half scare by the League Two outfit.

The Shrimps more than matched their Premier League opponents during the opening period, with Andrew Fleming and Padraig Amond threatening and goalkeeper Rob Elliot forced into a couple of superb stops.

At the other end, Dan Gosling went close with two of headers, while Gael Bigirimana and Paul Dummett also nearly broke the deadlock before the Ameobi brothers had the final say at the Globe Arena.
