Bad news for all long term NUFC sufferers with the fact Michael Owen has been ruled out of the upcoming Man City match. Joe Kinnear confirmed that our saving grace has suffered a groin strain and remains a doubt for the upcoming mackems match. JFK said:

‘He tweaked his groin in training so he is a big doubt. It`s 50-50 whether he plays for the Man City match. He is having a scan today. Then we will find out more, we are just assessing the situation. I am hoping it is not as bad as it looked when he first done it. I am hoping it may have calmed down but we are worried that if the scan shows a tear then he could be out for a month. Hopefully it won`t be but we are in the dark until later on today.’
