The 26-year-old has not played since September because of the problem but a return to the first-team squad could be imminent.

Boss Dougie Freedman is particularly short of options in that area and admits he had to be patient when it came to Wheater, who appeared seven times during Wanderers' disappointing start to the campaign.

"David Wheater will be back with us on Monday," he said.

"David Wheater's knee problem was never really solved. The physical condition couldn't handle the workload that was required to play week-in, week-out; hence at the beginning of the season he was playing a game and then not training. I couldn't have that.

"He's been for the last six weeks with the sports science department, 24 hours a day nearly, working.

"Monday morning he will be back, fully fit and in contention."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
