FACUNDO Ferreyra netted twice for Newcastle United’s Under-21s in a 3-3 draw against Bolton Wanderers tonight.

Sammy Ameobi was also on target for Peter Beardsley’s side in a goal-laden first half at Leyland.

All six goals in the Under-21 Premier League game, staged at the headquarters of Lancashire’s Football Association, came in the first 45 minutes.

Ferreyra, signed on a season-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, was not involved in yesterday’s first-team opener against Manchester City at St James’s Park.

But the 23-year-old could now come into contention for Saturday’s game against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

NEWCASTLE UNITED: Alnwick, Barlaser, Ferguson, Olley, Williams, Satka, Roberts, Bigirimana, Ferreyra, Armstrong, Ameobi.
