Yann Kermorgant: Should be fit to face Millwall

The French striker, who has scored three goals this season, missed Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield with an ankle injury.

"He should be okay," said Powell.

"It would have been a risk to play him on Tuesday, because of the knock he took on Saturday at Watford.

"I hope his powers of recovery are very good because he will be a big plus for us if he's fit.

"It's a local derby and a lot happens in games like that.

"We have got to be ready for playing against a side that are three miles down the road. There's a lot of local pride at stake and all the players will have to be recovered and ready to really put in a big effort against them on Saturday."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
