LEON Best has never looked back since Andy Carroll left Newcastle United – and the striker is determined to keep on looking forward at St James’s Park.

Best came to the fore after Carroll’s sale to Liverpool almost a year ago.

And the 25-year-old is still in among the goals, most recently ending a mini-drought by scoring Newcastle’s winner against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

“I’m always looking to score – or give something to the team and the fans,” Best told SportMail.

“It was a while since I scored, but I knew it would come.

“I just kept telling myself that if I don’t score, I need to bring something else to the team, whether its workrate or helping others score.

“Sometimes I find when I’m doing all that I’m not getting the chances to score.

“I’ve not had too many chances this season, but against QPR, I think we had one chance and I took it.

“In a game like that I think it’s important. There have been better games for us, but for us as a team, I think it goes to show how strong we are.”
