England striker Michael Owen says he hopes to have recovered from his serious knee injury in time to help Newcastle's Premiership campaign before the end of the season.
Owen, who damaged knee ligaments during England's World Cup campaign in Germany, appears to be increasingly optimistic of returning soon following his latest consultations with his surgeon.
The 27-year-old said: "If it remains a steady progression I'm hoping to be back in April.
"But the real test will come when we get nearer the time."
