Man Utd striker Owen ready for Cup start tonight

Manchester United striker Michael Owen hopes for another Carling Cup start tonight against Aldershot.

Owen made the most of his start at Leeds in the previous round, scoring two expertly-taken goals in the 3-0 win, and it's clear he would love the opportunity to repeat his feat of playing and scoring in the final in 2010.

"It's obviously going to be a massive game for Aldershot with Manchester United coming into town," Owen explained to MUTV. "I'm sure it'll be a full house and we're treating it as an important game as well.

"There's players who weren't involved against City, me being one of them, and a lot of the lads need games so it'll be quite a strong Manchester United playing against them.

"It's a competition we want to do well in. We've done quite well in the Carling Cup over the years and we want to progress and win a trophy. That's the end game."
