Papiss Cisse: Has netted only three goals so far this season
Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse admits his struggles in front of goal this season have left him feeling 'a little bit down'.
The Senegal international was a revelation on Tyneside last term, with a flurry of goals over the second half of the campaign announcing his arrival in style.
He settled immediately following a January switch from Freiburg, finding the target 13 times in 14 appearances.
Cisse has found the going a little tougher this season, with a three-goal return spread across the Premier League, Capital One Cup and Europa League.
The 27-year-old is disappointed not to have built on his success from 2011/12, but remains confident that the goals will come once the floodgates open.
He said: "I know I was scoring in every match last season, so when I have not been scoring I have felt a little bit down.
"But I have got three goals now, one in each competition, and that makes me certain that I will soon be back to what I was last season."
