Stoke City striker Michael Owen says that he wants to build on his goal against Swansea City in the second half of the season.

Michael Owen has said that he is relieved to have scored his first goal for Stoke City on Saturday.

The 33-year-old was on target for the Potters in their 3-1 away defeat to Swansea City in the Premier League to notch up his 150th strike in the English top flight.

"It's obviously nice to do it - I did fear that I would never get there," Owen told the club's official website.

"You do worry and think that it just isn't meant to be but thankfully I got there and it is another good achievement for me. It was a nice way to score my first goal for the club, in certain ways.

"It is now just a question of me doing well, training well and then taking the chance in the team when it comes along. Hopefully, the second half of the season can be a lot better for me."

Owen joined Stoke on a free transfer in September.
