Milner: Smith must play striker for Newcastle

James Milner is delighted to see Newcastle United teammate Alan Smith playing in his natural striker's position.

Milner told the Evening Chronicle: "That's his position and the one he's played in all of his life.

"I've seen a lot of him up front after coming through the ranks at Leeds and playing alongside him.

"That's his best position.

"But because he's such a genuine lad, he will play in any position he is asked.

"He can do that job in midfield because he's got so much energy."
