Ivan Toney has put himself in Steve McClaren’s thoughts ahead of Newcastle United’s Capital One Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday.
The 19-year-old striker, signed from Northampton Town this summer, scored for the club’s Under-21s against West Ham United tonight.
Winger Callum Roberts also netted in a 2-2 draw at Upton Park.
Toney – who made his senior debut in Newcastle’s second-round victory over Northampton last month – could now be involved for the senior team on Wednesday night.
Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren will make a number of changes for the third-round tie, which follows Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League loss to Watford at St James’s Park.
McClaren’s side have struggled for goals so far this season.
Toney cancelled out Jordan Brown’s first-half opener with a close-range shot after the hour-mark in front of a large crowd at the Boleyn Ground.
And Roberts, back from injury, looked to have claimed all three points for Newcastle with an 87th-minute strike.
The 18-year-old – who made his senior debut in the FA Cup last season – made a brilliant solo run, beating three men, before slotting the ball home.
But Martin Samuelsen levelled from the penalty spot a minute later.
Newcastle’s Under-21s, like the first team, are winless this season.
