Roeder tells Martins to keep calm in front of goal

Glenn Roeder has urged £10million striker Obafemi Martins to relax in front of goal after seeing him miss the chances to kill off Everton.

The 21-year-old Nigerian might have claimed the headlines with a series of opportunities in a grandstand finish to an entertaining game yesterday, but Tim Cahill's first-half header proved enough to claim a point for the visitors.

Roeder said: 'He is very disappointed, but my disappointment would be if he was not getting chances - that would disappoint me more.

'I know he will start to take the chances. Since he has been here, his ability to finish in small-sided games and practice matches in training is fantastic.

'He is a young player and he is maybe getting a little bit uptight when he pulls the trigger. But when he relaxes, he will finish those chances.

'He is a really good lad to work with, very conscientious and hard-working.'

Shola Ameobi fired the Magpies into a 14th-minute lead with the help of a dreadful offside decision which left Everton boss David Moyes fuming.

However, Cahill's 40th-minute equaliser dragged the visitors back into the game, and after Titus Bramble and Tony Hibbert had both been sent off for two bookable offences, Steve Harper produced a fine save to deny Leon Osman a late winner and Tim Howard did the same to keep out substitute Giuseppe Rossi.

Cahill pounced after slack marking from Craig Moore to leave his manager searching for superlatives.

Moyes said: 'He is one of the best at getting into the box. We can play him in the middle of the park, we can play him in between the striker and the midfield, we can play him right up top.

'You need to look at his goals - I think he has got four goals now. It is a great return.

'The system we are playing, we are creating more chances than we might do if we played any other way, so that is what we will do.

'I do not know how many opportunities we had, and but for a bad pass or the wrong decision at the last minute we could have had a few more goals.

'We are now playing him slightly further forward than just a central midfield player, but he is as good as anybody in the business at getting into the box and scoring goals.

'He is robust and whole-hearted and he does a good job for us.'

Meanwhile, Newcastle face an anxious wait to see how serious the ankle injury which forced Ameobi off after just 24 minutes proves to be.

Roeder said: 'It is too early to say. He turned to run, put his right foot down and felt something quite sharply in his ankle go.

'Until we have that scanned tomorrow, we do not know. He is fairly comfortable, he is not in too much pain tonight and we hope it is not too serious.'
