Owen Missing Again

Last updated : 29 November 2005 By Footy Mad - Editor

Owen, who seems to be fit BEFORE an away game but doesn't quite make it onto the field, blames a persistent groin injury.

Full-back Celestine Babayaro, who faced the wrath of Souness after almost seeing a red card at Goodison, is also sidelined by a similar injury. The list of the walking-wounded is much the same: Kieron Dyer (illness), Stephen Carr (hernia), Steven Taylor (shoulder) and Craig Moore (hamstring) all stay at home.

Newcastle (from): Given, Harper, Ramage, Elliott, Boumsong, Bramble, Parker, Solano, Bowyer, N'Zogbia, Emre, Luque, Clark, Faye, Brittain, Shearer, Ameobi, Chopra.
