Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill will assess Danny Rose's frame of mind before deciding whether to throw him into the heat of a derby battle after his experiences in Serbia.

The England Under-21 international was sent off during Tuesday night's 1-0 European Championship play-off victory in Krusevac amid allegations that he and other black players had been racially abused.

O'Neill has revealed he will wait before deciding whether or not the Tottenham loanee is mentally prepared to play in Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Newcastle, and said: "I will give him the opportunity just to let things lie for a day or two and I will speak to him closer to the time and see what frame of mind he is in."
