Shola Ameobi calls for cool heads at Newcastle United if they are to continue their push for a Champions League place.
Shola Ameobi: "At the start of the year we had our objectives as a team and those are exactly the same now regardless of where we are.
"We know as a club and a squad we want to finish as high as possible, and we will as long as we give everything we have on a Saturday afternoon.
"You deserve where you finish and we know that. It's great at the moment, but there's a long way to go.
"There's a lot of good teams behind us so we just have to focus on the next few games and see where it takes us.
"It's great to be a part of, it's exciting times for Newcastle so hopefully we can keep our heads and keep focused until the end of the season.
"The manager is putting a squad together that want to work for each other and do well and that's all we can ask really.
"We're in sixth position and I know a lot of people wouldn't have put us in that place at this stage, but there's a lot of hard work and effort gone into what we've done this year.
"We've got to be focused and keep our heads level."
