Owen Misses Toon Crunch Fixture

27 November 2012 03:55
Michael Owen said yesterday he wanted to line-up against his old side on Wednesday . but it looks unlikely.

Stoke duo Michael Owen and Andy Wilkinson are likely to miss tomorrow's Premier League clash with Newcastle.

Owen returned to training yesterday after a month out with a hamstring injury but Stoke are keen not to push the former England man too hard, while Wilkinson missed Saturday's victory over Fulham with a back problem.

Both players could well return for Saturday's trip to West Brom, but Marc Wilson (broken leg) and Rory Delap (hernia) are longer-term absentees.

Stoke provisional squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron, Upson, Shotton, Whelan, Etherington, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Kightly, Adam, Edu, Nzonzi, Ness, Whitehead.
