Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan insisted Michael Owen is still a force to be reckoned with after he snatched a second-half equaliser in Monday night´s relegation clash at Birmingham.

The England striker scored his third goal since Keegan´s return to the club to earn a precious point and cancel out a first-half effort from Blues striker James McFadden, making it the fourth time in the past two months City have drawn 1-1 at home with a side in the bottom six.

"He is a world-class player," said Keegan. "Some people in this country might be losing a bit of faith but when you look at his statistics, even his record for Newcastle by anyone´s standards is excellent."
