"I was just so delighted that we received the three points," he said. "I went in to see them after thew match had finished and was gloating a little bit!"

Carroll, who spent much of his six years at West Ham sidelined through injury featured as a late second half substitute in the game , entering the fray as an 89th minute substitute for record signing Joelinton.

He has made five appearances from the subs bench for the Magpies since returning to the club on a free transfer during the summer.

"It's been hard," he added. "I've had my ups and downs with injuries, but hopefully I'm past them all now.

"It's been great [being back in Newcastle]. I've missed being home. I've missed being with my family and friends, just driving around, memories.

"It's great to be back at the club. I'd say 50-60% of the staff are still the same."
