Roeder convinced the Magpies are on the way back up

Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder is convinced the Magpies will not be hanging around at the foot of the Premiership for long.

Although Roeder's side picked up a point from their goalless visit to Manchester City, it was their eighth league game without a win and keeps them down among the relegation strugglers.

It was hardly a situation which could have been predicted at the start of the season, even when star striker Michael Owen was ruled out with knee-ligament damage.

But Roeder retains enough confidence in the players who remain to believe Newcastle will eventually surge back up the table.

'We have not done well enough in the Premiership so far,' said Roeder, whose team have been handed a tough Carling Cup quarter-final draw against favourites Chelsea next month.

'But there is enough determination, courage and motivation in this squad to mean we will be fine in terms of getting ourselves out of the position we are in.'

Newcastle's clear problem is in the goalscoring department.

Having found the net just seven times in 12 outings this season, the Magpies can ill-afford to lose Shola Ameobi but the time is fast approaching for former England Under-21 star to have hip surgery which will end his contribution to the current campaign.

'I could force him to carry on playing but it would be unfair to put someone's career in jeopardy, so we have to take the hit now,' said Roeder.

'I like the phrase `limp along' but clearly the transfer window cannot come quickly enough for us now.'

The one bit of good news for Roeder was the return of England international Kieron Dyer, who finally appears to have recovered from the hamstring problems which have plagued him in recent years.

Dyer was introduced for Ameobi after half-time and might even have won it for the Magpies during a late assault which represented the visitors' only concerted pressure of the entire game.

'Kieron's fitness is probably the best it has been for quite a long time,' said Roeder.

'He played for me last year but he was always pulling up in some pain from his hamstring.

'We have decided to give him a longer break and he seems to have the confidence that he can now press the accelerator without injuring himself.'

If Dyer had become Newcastle's match-winner it would have been tough luck on City, who dominated for long periods but could not get the goal they deserved.

Steve Harper made two good saves to deny Joey Barton and Bernardo Corradi before referee Graham Poll controversially ruled out a close-range Georgios Samaras header, ruling Corradi had fouled Stephen Carr in the tussle to reach Barton's corner.

Poll has been under fire from all sides this week following the dismissals of John Terry and James McFadden. But, while his initial reaction told him the goal should have stood, Pearce opted not to stick the boot in to England's World Cup referee.

'It was a disappointing decision but the referee has given it and I support him in that,' said Pearce, whose side are still to concede a goal on home soil this season.

'Overall, I thought Graham did well. He has been under a bit of a cloud this week. But, to be fair to him, he is not a shrinking violet.

'He makes decisions and if you ask a question of him he will come over and give you an honest answer, which you have to admire him for.'
