Football - Spurs wait on Adebayor

Tottenham will test Emmanuel Adebayor's fitness before deciding whether he goes straight back in to the starting line-up for the Barclays Premier League clash against Newcastle at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor has been at the African Nations Cup for almost a month, but manager Andre Villas-Boas hopes he will come through today's training session as his only other recognised striker Jermain Defoe is out with an ankle injury.

Midfielder Sandro and defender Younes Kaboul (both knee) are unavailable, although the latter will start training again on Monday with a view to being fit in a fortnight.
