Roeder's Options Down To Bare Bones

Roeder's Options Down To Bare Bones

With Obafemi Martins ruled out of Newcastle United's UEFA Cup game against Palermo on Thursday night, and Seppi Rossi missing because of the clause in his loan contract when he signed from Man Utd, Glenn Roeder has major problems.

Glenn Roeder will rest the former FC Internazionale striker for two weeks after the Nigerian limped off during the Carling Cup tie against Portsmouth.

Roeder: 'Oba has a tight hamstring. If he continued to play for the next two weeks it would have the potential to turn into a hamstring tear. Players with the speed he has often pick up hamstring strains. We need to protect him for the next couple of weeks.'
