Newcastle manager Sir Bobby Robson is confident his team can get a result in Marseille to reach the Uefa Cup final.

“It goes obviously to Marseille. Can we score there? I think we can,” he said after the 0-0 first leg result.

“They know to beat us they will have to be a bit more adventurous and to do that release more men forward.”

“We scored twice last year in Milan in the Champions League and three times in Feyenoord away from home so we are capable of scoring a goal.”

Robson was without four key players for the game with Craig Bellamy, Kieron Dyer, Jermaine Jenas and Lee Bowyer all sidelined. None are guaranteed being fit for the second leg.

“Whether we can get Bellamy, Dyer or JJ fit for the return leg is a bit doubtful because they have got grade two scan tears which is quite a significant injury.

“Is two weeks enough? I don’t know but we’ll try.”
