Owen hoping Carling Cup brace gets him more Man Utd game time

Manchester United striker Michael Owen hopes his double against Scunthorpe during the week will see him get more minutes.

The 30-year old helped the Red Devils to a 5-2 Carling Cup win with two goals and with a busy schedule coming up, hopes he can play more of a part for Sir Alex Ferguson.

"It was a good workout at Scunthorpe and we're glad to go through as some big teams went out," he said.

"There were a lot of players there who needed that first game - some coming back from injury and some who hadn't played, so it was beneficial.

"We're into a period now where the Champions League and Carling Cup have started and, obviously, there's league games.

"I'm sure there will be a lot more games coming thick and fast now."
