Man United 4 Apr 1998

The cavalry should be back for Manchester United against Blackburn on Monday
when a clutch of recently injured stars are hoping to return.

Peter Schmeichel, Gary Pallister, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs trained this
week and are in contention to face Blackburn at Ewood Park - and as far as
one former United and Rovers star at least is concerned they may make the
difference for the Reds.

Former Republic of Ireland international Kevin Moran said: ``As we all know
injuries have taken a big toll on United, and it's possible as a team they
were focused on Europe.

``The key thing for United is that they are getting players back. That's
crucial for them and that gives the whole side a big lift.''

Schmeichel and Giggs have been struggling with hamstring injuries, while
Pallister has been blighted by a back problem and Butt a calf complaint.

United's FA Carling Premiership title rivals Arsenal, by contrast, are
losing players through injury and suspension, and Moran believes this and
their hectic run-in could tip the title odds in his old team's favour.

``From United's point of view it's nice to have the points, but it's also
out of their control,'' he said.

``They must look to other clubs to take some points off Arsenal.

``It's going to be very difficult for Arsenal, though, especially nearer the
end when they will be chock-a-block with game upon game.

``They are still involved in the Cup, and I think this could take its toll
on the club.

``They have a problem in that they are not going to get many goals,
especially with Dennis Bergkamp being suspended and Ian Wright trying to get

``The young lads up front have done well, but I wonder if they can continue
to get the goals.

``I still feel it will be United and I think they will just pip Arsenal for
the title.''

Teddy Sheringham will also be available after suspension for the Blackburn
game, and Moran feels both sides will be desperate to win the match for
different reasons.

United need a victory to double their lead over Arsenal to six points, while
Rovers are anxious to secure a UEFA Cup spot.

Moran said: ``It's always a big game but it has that extra edge because of
the positions of the two clubs.

``United are going for the championship, while Blackburn are going for the
UEFA Cup, so there's a lot at stake.''

Moran has been greatly impressed by what Rovers boss Roy Hodgson has done
since he took over in the summer.

Hodgson has sold 18million worth of talent, but his side are still riding
high in the Premiership.

``I think he deserves an awful lot of credit,'' said Moran.

``In essence it's the same squad which has been around for the last couple
of years, although he has had to sell the likes of Henning Berg and Graeme
Le Saux.

``But they've coped brilliantly, and for me Roy Hodgson is an outstanding

Subject:   Super Six Back For United (PA)

By David Anderson, PA Sport

The build-up to Blackburn's clash with Manchester United on Monday has been
dominated by the internationals who are returning and the one who is not.

For a change United boss Alex Ferguson has some good team news with six
players available after injury and suspension for the trip to Ewood Park.

Peter Schmeichel (hamstring), Gary Pallister (back), Ryan Giggs (hamstring)
and Nicky Butt (calf) are all fit, while Teddy Sheringham is back after a
one-match ban.

Jordi Cruyff may also make the squad after the Dutch international came
through a reserve game last Monday following his recovery from a hairline
fracture of his ankle.

Ferguson is delighted to have the backbone of his side back as their title
fight with Arsenal enters the final rounds.

"I would say that we're almost back to full strength now," he said. "We're
certainly in a very good position compared to where we were before.

"You need all you key men fit for at this time of year, although you don't
always get that.

"But we've got a chance now of keeping everyone fit and together.

"I don't know how this affects the balance of the title race, but it does us
no harm to have them all fit - that's for sure. Our hand is strengthened,
there's no question about that."

A quick glance at United's results since Giggs and Pallister have been
sidelined shows how important they have been this season.

The Old Trafford outfit have won just two of the eight games since Giggs
limped off with his hamstring problem against Derby on February 21 after
scoring the Goal of the Month.

In the intervening weeks, United have been dumped out of Europe, the FA Cup
and seen Arsenal claw their way back into the title race.

Pallister's last match before being sidelined with his back complaint was
the 1-0 victory at Chelsea a week later, which extended their lead at the
top of the Premiership to 11 points.

"We've not been able to play our strongest side since Chelsea in the Cup in
January," said Ferguson.

"I think we've put ourselves in the position that we're in, but with these
players coming back from injury we're quite capable of doing the job now."

But the news coming out of the Blackburn camp is not so rosy.

England goalkeeper Tim Flowers had keyhole surgery on Friday on his
troublesome shoulder injury and will be out for weeks.

Northern Ireland international Alan Fettis will continue to deputise for him
and he has not had the luckiest of times in the Blackburn goal.

Within minutes of replacing Flowers against Barnsley in midweek he was
picking the ball out of the net and he has conceded nine goals in his five

Rovers boss Roy Hodgson is not unduly worried about replacing Flowers with

"He's an international goalkeeper as well and he's always done well with
Northern Ireland," he said.

Blackburn striker Kevin Gallacher echoed Hodgson's sentiments when he said:
"We've got an international class goalie in Alan.

"Alan has done a great job for us when he has come in for Tim, so we've no
worries about him."

Fergie's family time
By Bob Cass

Sunday, April 5, 1998

Alex Ferguson will desert Old Trafford this afternoon on family football
business. The Manchester United manager will be at Villa Park instead where
he hopes to cheer son Darren and his Wolves team-mates on to a place in the
FA Cup final by beating Arsenal.

'Darren is in the squad and I thought I'd go along and cheer him on,' said
the United boss, who has just recovered from a bout of 'flu that laid him
low all last week.

The game will also mean something extra special for sixth-round hero Don
Goodman, whose goal at Leeds United earned Wolves a shock victory.

The 31-year-old striker's last semi-final experience was as a Sunderland
player six years ago when he was forced to sit on the bench at both the
semi-final and the final because he was cup-tied.

'The worst I felt was during the semi and not actually at Wembley later,' he
recalled. 'Sunderland played Norwich at Hillsborough and the only time I
felt sorry for myself was when I walked out of the tunnel and saw the sea of
red and white on my right and heard the noise coming from the supporters.

'I just thought to myself "I wish I was out there".'

The wait will be worth it for Goodman, who is expected to recover from
injury in time to make the noon line-up. Victory would mean a belated
celebration, with Wembley coming a week after his 32nd birthday.

'The FA Cup is a competition that encourages upsets. Regardless of what team
you're playing, whether it's the first round or the semi-final you have a
chance of winning.'

   Marcus Lionel van Geyzel.
