Stockport captain Gareth Owen will be fit to face Rochdale in the League Two play-off final despite suffering a broken cheekbone.

Owen had lengthy treatment from physio Roger Wylde for an accidental clash of heads during the club's semi-final victory over Wycombe at the weekend.

X-rays taken during the week have revealed the injury but Owen has made himself available to play in Monday's final against Dale at Wembley.

"I've broken my cheekbone and my eye's a bit swollen, but it will take more than that to stop me playing," Owen told County Radio.

"I've seen the specialist and he has given me the all-clear to play with a mask.

"The lads have said it will probably improve my looks but I can take that, and if it gets me to Wembley I'll take anything."
