Owen in doubt for vital Newcastle clash

Newcastle United striker Michael Owen is in doubt for this weekend's vital survival clash with Aston Villa.

A groin problem is keeping the England international out of action at the moment and it seems almost certain he will miss the fixture at Villa Park.

"Michael Owen tweaked his groin and had a fitness test, which didn't last very long," manager Alan Shearer told the Newcastle Chronicle.

"We'll get him scanned on Monday, so we'll know the results on Monday afternoon. We'll see where we go from there."
