Sammy Ameobi: Says team are sorry for performance

More than 2,000 Newcastle fans made the trip to St Mary's but saw a less than inspiring display as the Saints claimed a 2-0 win.

"We can't apologise enough," Ameobi told Newcastle's site.

"It was an unacceptable display and if I had travelled all the way down to watch that I would be devastated.

"Hopefully we can get back on the right track at Stoke on Wednesday night and give them something to cheer about."

Ameobi admitted that they could offer few excuses for the display.

"Everyone is so disappointed, we weren't good enough and that is hard to take," he said.

"We've got so many injuries and had another really busy week as well with the Europa League.

"But that is not an excuse for the performance we put in out there today. We were too sloppy at times.

"We are slowly creeping down the table and we have to start getting results as soon as possible to get us back towards where we want, and need, to be."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
