Special K on Oba

Special K on Oba

Having been absent from Newcastle duties for the best part of the month and no doubt tired from appearing in R&B videos, Oba Martins has returned to the fold and should be fit for facing ManYoo in ten days when the Cockney Reds come to SJP. Having missed the Villa game with an injured ankle, KK was quick to play down reports of a more serious injury:

"Oba will be fine, he just turned his ankle before he came back and he`s had to have a couple of days` rest. We`re confident he will be back in training with the rest of the group by the end of the week.

I`m looking forward to him joining us because I`ve seen quite a lot of him previously and I know what he can do. It`s just a case of having a close look at him on our training pitch now. He`s got great pace and he`s still our top goalscorer, even though he has been at the African Cup of Nations for the best part of a month. We`ll also have Geremi back this week after his efforts with Cameroon and he will be in training by the end of the week as well. It`s more the merrier as far as I`m concerned."
