Chris Basham: Could return for festive programme

Basham has enjoyed a new lease of life at Bloomfield Road since Appleton succeeded Ian Holloway as manager, starting five times and impressing in the holding midfield role.

The 24-year-old's ankle problem ruled him out of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Blackburn but Appleton is confident Basham will be back at his disposal for the festive period.

"We're hoping it's short-term," he told BBC Radio Lancashire. "Whether he'll be ready for Wolves on Friday, we're not too sure.

"He's got a tear in his ligament, but it's not a substantial one that you would expect to keep him out of action for weeks and weeks."

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
