The Senegalese striker opened the scoring once again at St James' Park last night, but Eduardo Salvio's late goal secured a 1-1 draw that saw Jorge Jesus's men into the last four of the Europa League.
Despite the disappointment of defeat, Ameobi reflected positively on the team's run to the quarter-finals of the competition.
"Two goals is a lot to come back but tonight we gave it a right good go," Sky Sports News quotes Ameobi as saying. "We knew with our fans we would have a good chance.
"That is the luck of the draw I guess but we gave it everything we got but two goals was a bridge too far.
"Credit has to go to the lads - getting to the quarter finals of a big competition is something special."
