VdS To Miss Trotters Game

VdS To Miss Trotters Game

Edwin van der Sar is expected to miss out on Saturday's league game against Bolton as United's injury problems mount.

Teh Dutch keeper suffered a calf injury during the warm-up for last Saturday's cup tie at the Riverside. He was replaced by Tomasz Kuczszak who is likey to deputise again when the Trotters visit Old Trafford in a Saturday lunchtime kick-off game.

"I didn`t play in our FA Cup quarter-final against Middlesbrough at the weekend, as I injured my calf during the warm-up' Edwin said.

"I suddenly felt that it wasn`t good, so I decided not to play.

'It`s always better to rest, even if it`s just a small strain, so that it doesn`t get any worse.

"I have had scans since then, which show a little damage in my calf.

"I don`t think I will be back in time to face Bolton on Saturday — that would be pushing it.

'We will see but it certainly doesn`t look that way."

So, a quick look at the injury situation: Louis Saha, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Darren Fletcher, Mikael Silvestre, Edwin van der Sar will all miss the game against Bolton, as well as Scholes who wil serve the second match of his ban. So we are quite short in numbers right now - hopefully that won't cause too much damage. Any home game is a must win at this stage so the Reds should overcome Allardyce's men whatever problems they face.

He won't be out for much longer, I expect he'll be back after the international break.

Good saves, yeah, but dealing with crosses and set-pieces is still a weakness of the Pole. Edwin is much more commanding.
