Michael Owen is rated only at 50-50 to return for Newcastle when they face Derby in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

The 28-year-old has not featured for the Magpies since suffering a thigh injury playing in an England friendly against Austria last month and, although boss Sam Allardyce had originally pencilled him in for Sunday, he is keen to tread carefully.

"Hopefully Michael is going to get back into some form of training this week, and Derby might still be a bit soon, but we´ll keep our fingers crossed," Allardyce told the Newcastle Chronicle.
