Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll is keen to prove his worth to temporary manager Alan Shearer between now and the end of the Premier League season.

The 20-year-old, who scored the equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke, says the arrival of Shearer is a personal boost.

"Shearer as manager is unbelievable, he was my hero," he told BBC Newcastle.

"I used to watch him when I was younger, I've got to impress him now and I've got to do what I can do."
