Michael Owen was on the scoresheet again as Newcastle took a huge stride towards Barclays Premier League safety with a 4-1 victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Kevin Keegan´s men fell behind to Darren Bent´s opener but goals from Nicky Butt and Geremi put the visitors ahead before Owen scored his third in as many games for his club.

Obafemi Martins added a fourth with eight minutes remaining, latching onto Joey Barton´s pass and finishing calmly.
