Scholes Misses FA Cup Tie

Scholes Misses FA Cup Tie

Paul Scholes has been ruled out of Manchester United's FA Cup tie at Burton after failing to fully recover from the head injury he suffered at Birmingham on December 28.

Scholes is still suffering slightly blurred vision so Sir Alex Ferguson has decided not to risk the former England international against the non-leaguers.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to start his first game since May 2004 and could be joined up front by Louis Saha in a much-changed line-up to the one that drew at Arsenal on Tuesday.

Alan Smith is back after a recent chest infection but there is no place for new signing Nemanja Vidic, who has been restricted to endurance work as he builds up his fitness following his recent arrival from Spartak Moscow.

Manchester United (from): Howard, Van der Sar, Steele, Neville, Bardsley, Ferdinand, Brown, Silvestre, O'Shea, Richardson, Ronaldo, Park, Fletcher, Smith, Giggs, Saha, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Solskjaer, Rossi, Pique.
