Iwelumo started in the Magpies attack against Swindon on Saturday alongside Francois Zoko, less than 48 hours after moving to Meadow Lane on loan from Watford.

The 34-year-old set up Alan Judge to score the winning goal and was only denied getting his name on the scoresheet by a superb save from Town goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

"He did what he does best," said Curle after his side's 1-0 victory. "He was the focal point of our attack, a platform for other people to play off. He gave us a new dimension as well.

"He played a big part in the goal, by winning the first ball. It dropped to Alan Judge and it was a fantastic finish. He also came very close to scoring, it was a great save from their goalkeeper.

"We might have just found another piece of the jigsaw in our quest to be successful this season."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
