Oba Martins has only scored one Premiership goal to date, but he been supported by none other than Arsene Wenger.
Wenger: 'I think Glenn Roeder made a great choice in taking Martins to Newcastle where he can be a success.'
Roeder: 'Saturday was Oba's best game for us. It wasn't easy for him against world-class defenders in William Gallas and Kolo Toure, but he caused them problems all game.
'His ability to spring up and win the ball in the air is one of the reasons why Kieron Dyer was able to score our goal.
'He has already formed a good partnership with Kieron and to be fair to Oba we now have to find him a regular partner.
'When we linked him up with Antoine Sibierski at Middlesbrough the pair of them looked terrific together, but then Sibby went off injured.
'People are judging Oba far too soon - and there are other high-profile players who have taken time to settle.'
