Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse admits that he is relieved to back among the goals after getting his first of the season against Manchester United on Wednesday.

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse has shared his relief after scoring his first goal of the season against Manchester United on Wednesday.

The Senegalese striker came on as a substitute to net at Old Trafford, but could not stop his side losing 2-1 in the Capital One Cup.

Cisse told the club's official website that he expects to start netting regularly after finally getting off the mark in 2012-13.

When asked if he thought he could now go on a goalscoring streak, Cisse replied: "Yes, I am very happy. For me it was very good to score.

"Two would have been very good but a goal didn't happen at that time."

Cisse is aiming to open his Premier League account for the season when the Magpies travel to Reading this weekend.
