Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor is in a race against time to be fit to face Newcastle United.
The Togolese marksman has been in fine form following his loan move to White Hart Lane from Manchester City with three goals in four appearances.
The former Arsenal man scored twice in a 4-0 win over Liverpool while he also found the back of the net on his debut against Wolves.
However, he sustained a hamstring strain in Tottenham's 2-1 success over North London rivals Arsenal 10 days ago.
Adebayor is now believed to have a 50-50 chance of playing at St James' Park on Sunday.
