Adebayor in fitness fight to face Toon

Emmanuel Adebayor is facing a race against time to be fit for

Tottenham’s Barclays Premier League trip to Newcastle.

On-loan Manchester City striker Adebayor has been struggling

with a hamstring strain picked up in Spurs’ derby win over Arsenal

10 days ago and is believed to have a 50-50 chance of playing in

Sunday’s match at St James’ Park.

Adebayor has impressed since moving to White Hart Lane for the

season, scoring three times in four appearances.
