Liam Ridgewell: Set to return from injury for this weekend's clash against N

The 28-year-old should be available for selection after a groin problem, but striker Peter Odemwingie is a doubt due to a knee injury that kept him out of the 2-1 defeat against Arsenal on April 6.

Manager Steve Clarke otherwise has a full squad to choose from, with Steven Reid also returning to the side after injury.

"Liam Ridgewell picked up a little bit of a knock in training," Clarke told the club's website.

"He felt a tightness in his groin the other day so we took him out but we're still hopeful for the weekend."

Meanwhile, Clarke insists that the future of Zoltan Gera, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Jerome Thomas, who are all out of contract at the end of the season, will not be determined by the remaining six fixtures.

"Nobody's future will be decided on the final six games. Futures will be decided on what players have done for the club previously and how we see the club going forward."

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.
