Michael Owen remains sidelined for Stoke ahead of clash with former club Newcastle United
Premier League team news
Tuesday 27 November 2012
Stoke duo Michael Owen and Andy Wilkinson are likely to miss tomorrow's Barclays 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.
Provisional squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron, Upson, Shotton, Whelan, Etherington, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Kightly, Adam, Edu, Nzonzi, Ness, Whitehead.
