Newcastle skipper Jamaal Lascelles is backing £40million striker Joelinton to prove his worth after seeing him end his 20-game wait for a goal.

The 23-year-old Brazilian has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks after failing to add to his only previous strike, a Premier League winner at Tottenham on August 25.However, he finally found the back of the net late in Tuesday night's 4-1 FA Cup third-round replay victory over League One Rochdale to the delight of his team-mates.



'He's a really good player and it's tough for him.



He's playing up there by himself most games and fighting centre-halves.

He does do a lot for the team and now he's got a goal.

Lascelles said: 'That's what probably makes it even harder for us to see him go weeks and weeks and weeks without scoring.

It was a relief too for Lascelles to be back out on the pitch after having to sit out a frustrating festive period in a treatment room which became increasingly crowded as the casualties piled up.
