Manchester United striker Michael Owen is working towards playing in the final games of the season.

Manchester United striker Michael Owen is working towards playing in the final games of the season.

The 32-year-old is closing in on full fitness again after finally battling back from a thigh injury he sustained at the beginning of November.

"I have to get myself to a stage where I could be available for the last four or five matches," Owen said.

"To a certain extent that would be my job done. If I am available, should we get an injury or need a goal in the last 10 minutes then I am there and the manager knows I have a track record that suggests I can do something.

"Whether I play or not is the manager's decision but I can get myself into that position."
