The club have today confirmed that Michael Owen will be out until Christmas after sustaining an injury in our 2-0 win over Otelul Galati.

Owen was setting up the opening goal when picking up the injury, although it was initially thought not to be too serious.

“Michael has a thigh muscle injury and will be out for six weeks or so.”
