Phillips Praise For Roeder
Ex-Mackem striker Kevin Phillips, currently at Villa Park where the Magpies play at the weekend, on Newcastle caretaker boss Glenn Roeder:
'I know Glenn very well from my days at Watford and I've got a very high opinion of him. I owe my career to him. He's the one who took the chance on me by taking me from non-league football.
'He's had health problems and come through them. Apart from the 90 minutes on Saturday, I wish him all the best.'
