Newcastle 2-0 Barnsley
Newcastle striker Michael Owen
Owen celebrates after ending his long scoring drought for Newcastle
Michael Owen scored his first goal of the season to help Newcastle see off Barnsley in the Carling Cup.

The England striker ended a 20-month wait since his last competitive goal for his club when he met Shola Ameobi's pass and fired home.

Barnsley were second-best throughout and Nicky Butt and Ameobi both had chances to extend Newcastle's lead.

Obafemi Martins came on for Owen with seven minutes left and sealed victory with an acrobatic volley.
