'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Owen Set For Birmingham Return

Caretaker Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder will let Michael Owen decide if he wants to start the game at Birmingham this weekend.

The 26-year-old has returned to full training after recovering from his fractured metatarsal, and looks set to return to action.

Roeder: 'We will see how training goes on Thursday and Friday. If it goes as well as Monday and Tuesday went, he will be mightily close to being able to start a game.

'I will sit down and talk with him and he has to be a main driver in the decision.

'We'll wait and see and let Birmingham think about whether or not Michael is going to start or be on the bench, but I would like to think he will play a big part in the game.

'Watching him train on Tuesday reminded me of how good he is. He's got fantastic movement and doesn't need many chances to tuck away the goals.'
