The 25-year-old missed the 3-0 defeat to Peterborough on Saturday after complaining of a tight hamstring in the days leading up to the game.

Clough did not want to risk the midfielder but expects him to be available to play against Blackpool at the weekend.

"We wanted Craig out there on Saturday and he was itching to play as well, but it was one of those occasions where we didn't feel it was right to risk him," Clough told the club's official website.

"He felt a little tight, and given it was a very cold day too we didn't want to push him out there and then see him pull his hamstring.

"If that had been the case he would probably have been ruled out for the whole of November.

"It was a blow for us going into the game and we certainly missed him during the 90 minutes, and we fully expect him to be back in the fold for the Blackpool game."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
