Michael Owen is recovering well from a broken bone in his foot and has already started light training. The boots are back on, and he is still on course for his return.

Glenn Roeder: ‘It’s onwards and upwards for Michael. I’m confident he’ll play for Newcastle before the end of the season.

‘Michael put his boots on and did some running with them on. He did a very little bit of ball work as well and after the session he was very happy.’
