The Nigeria international took time to settle on Tyneside and although some Newcastle fans remain unconvinced with the former Chelsea player, his last five games for the Magpies have coincided with four clean sheets.

Babayaro: "The injury feels okay now. It is good to be back, I watched the Sunderland game and it was good to get a win and I am happy to be back. There is a great spirit in the camp at the moment, we are playing well and winning games."

"It has been very frustrating for me because I have been suffering from this niggling problem and for me it was disappointing not to be back for the derby against Sunderland because when I arrived in Newcastle I heard there was no derby match like the one we have here. I was very, very disappointed not to be part of it but that is life for you."
