Newcastle United defender Davide Santon wants to score more goals for the club following his strike in Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Wigan Athletic.

Newcastle United defender Davide Santon has claimed that he wants to score more goals for the club following his strike in Sunday's defeat against Wigan Athletic.

The 22-year-old Italian international netted for the first time in his professional career at the weekend as the Magpies were beaten 2-1 at the DW Stadium in the Premier League.

"Of course I like going more forward than defending but if I play left-back or right-back I know my job is first to defend and after that, to go forward," Santon told the club's official website.

"I've been trying for a long time to score and the goalkeeper always makes an amazing save but finally I scored and I'm happy. I hope it's the first of a lot of goals in my career."

Sunday's defeat has left Newcastle in 13th place in the Premier League table.
