Mikele Leigertwood: Returned to action for the U21s

The 31-year-old has not figured this season after having an ankle operation last summer, but he will get a run-out for the club's under-21s against Basingstoke on Thursday night to build up his fitness.

Manager Nigel Adkins told the club website: "Ledge has been a top, top pro - it's been so frustrating for him.

"He's going to get a planned 45 minutes, no more than that. So all being well he will come through that unscathed.

"His attitude has been exemplary. I cannot speak highly enough of him."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
