Goalkeeper Lee damaged ligaments in a shoulder after falling awkwardly during the Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Oldham on September 4 and it was thought the injury would keep him out for up to eight weeks.

A similar timescale was put on Smith's recovery from an ankle operation after the left-back went under the knife that same week.

Striker Richards suffered an ankle injury in the thrilling 4-3 home league win over Accrington on September 18. Last week scans revealed the damage was not as serious as first thought and the 30-year-old was expected to be unavailable for around a month.

Caretaker manager Tommy Wright said: "They are all progressing well but we have to be careful with them in case one of them has a setback. But I would say, fingers crossed, they are probably just ahead of schedule.

"We are pleased with their progress but obviously, as I said, you can have setbacks. At this moment in time we are really pleased and hopefully they will keep progressing."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
