Manchester United striker Michael Owen has received some more negative injury news in that he faces another few weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

The former Liverpool star cannot take a trick in recent times and after being set to return to the United fray for Tuesday night's Carling Cup clash with Wolves from a groin injury, he has again been confined to the medical room.

"I've trained for a week and had a setback with another muscle injury," said Owen.

"I've got some damage in my hamstring and will be out for the next few weeks unfortunately."
