As I'm sure you will all know by now, Newcastle will be without Michael Owen for Monday's clash with Middlesbrough after the striker broke a bone in his foot during the defeat by Tottenham. Magpies goalkeeper Shay Given injured his thumb at White Hart Lane and is considered doubtful, with Steve Harper set to deputise, but Graeme Souness refuses to give up on Given.
Midfielder Lee Bowyer is suspended, while Emre, Kieron Dyer and Craig Moore are all out with hamstring problems. Steven Taylor (shoulder) misses out, while Peter Ramage (calf and Achilles) is a doubt.
Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren will monitor the fitness of striker Aiyegbeni Yakubu. The Nigerian international took a knock on the hip during the 0-0 draw against Manchester City at the Riverside Stadium.
Middlesbrough, who have taken only six points from eight games, will be again be without injured duo George Boateng (ankle) and Fabio Rochemback (calf).
NEWCASTLE (from): Given, Harper, Caig, Carr, Babayaro, Ramage, Boumsong, Bramble, Elliott, Parker, Faye, Luque, Solano, N'Zogbia, Clark, Shearer, Ameobi, Chopra.
MIDDLESBRO (from): Schwarzer, Parnaby, Riggott, Southgate, Queudrue, Pogatetz, Doriva, Mendieta, Morrison, Yakubu, Viduka, Hasselbaink, Jones, Maccarone, Bates, Cattermole.
