Gabriel Obertan reveals that he will keep trying to earn a regular place in the Newcastle United starting lineup.

Gabriel Obertan has revealed that he won't give up on breaking into the Newcastle United starting lineup.

The French midfielder scored the winner on Thursday as a much-changed Magpies side saw off Club Brugge 1-0 at St James' Park in the Europa League.

"We don't get to play much in the Premier League," Obertan, 23, told reporters. "So we wanted to show the gaffer that we could have a starting position in the Premier League.

"I feel I've done pretty well in the Europa League and I'll wait for that position to come. I'm not going to give up. I trust myself."

Obertan joined Newcastle on a five-year contract from Manchester United in summer 2011.
