United will take on Wigan at 12.45 tomorrow without a recognised defensive midfielder.
Owen Hargreaves, Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick are all out with different injuries, leaving Fergie with little options. John O'Shea could play alongside Scholes but...
'Wes (Brown) is a bit doubtful,' the official site quotes the boss. 'I'm going to see how he is after training on Friday. But we've got cover in that area.'
That of course means that O'Shea will play at right-back again. Either Ryan Giggs or Anderson will take the other central midfield position in a certainly attacking formation.
By the way, attackers. Sir Alex is still not certain who will start up front. You can bet that Rooney will but the identity of his foil is still unclear. Fergie was impressed by Saha's midweek performance but says he does not want to rush him and risk another injury therefore it's possible that Carlos Tevez will regain his place in the starting line-up.
'We were encouraged by the vigorous performance Saha gave us because he has that great physical presence and speed and I thought it was a really first-class game in his first start for a long time,' Ferguson said on SkySports.com.
'We are on the right path with him and what we've done so far is without doubt the right thing to do.
'What we have to decide now is if he is ready for a second start or do we put him back on the bench where he can make an impact also.
'His scoring record is excellent. He scored 15 last year before he got his injury and if he had remained he could have got 30, who's to say, because he has that threat of a goal in different ways, headers, either foot, very good.'
What we can expect is this:
Kuszczak - O'Shea, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra - Ronaldo, Scholes, Giggs, Nani - Tevez, Rooney
Subs: Heaton, Anderson, Piqué, Saha, Eagles
Not bad but the midfield's defending is suspect to say the least. We'll see how it all pans out tomorrow.
