Michael Owen: Almost ready to return for Stoke after injury

Having previously only managed a total of 53 minutes in four substitute appearances for Stoke since his signing as a free agent back in September, Owen insists he has recovered from a hamstring injury.

Owen has battled injuries over the past few years but is now looking to get back to action after being put through his paces at the weekend.

Owen said: "I'm back in full training. The physios and the medical team were up at the stadium for Saturday's match. So I trained there.

"They made me run up every stairway at the ground. It was a hard old session."

Owen is thought to have an outside chance of being fit to face his former club Newcastle on Wednesday, but is more likely to return against West Brom on Saturday.
