Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini does not believe there is a problem for the club in scoring goals.

The Magpies remain unbeaten in the league but have managed just three goals in four league games this season and drew a blank in two of those matches - the last a goalless draw with QPR on Monday.

Leon Best, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi and Demba Ba all failed to reach double figures last season and they are under increasing pressure to chip in with some goals.

But United skipper Coliccini believes goals will come as the club have creative players.

No worries

"I do not have any worries about our attacking. I know we have a side that is capable of creating chances and scoring goals and you will see that in the next few games."

He told the Northern Echo: "I do not have any worries about our attacking. I know we have a side that is capable of creating chances and scoring goals and you will see that in the next few games.

"It was difficult on Monday because I thought QPR played a very good game and prevented us from creating too many chances. They pressured the ball very well.

"But I don't think there is any issues in terms of us creating things - we scored three goals in the two games before that.

"We have very good creative players. We have strong attackers and strong midfielders - I really don't think there will be a problem in terms of scoring goals."
