Cole Skuse: Could feature on Saturday

Skuse was forced to sit out the weekend defeat at Burnley after suffering a bad reaction to playing twice in the space of four days against Derby and Sheffield Wednesday over Easter.

City head coach Sean O'Driscoll hopes to have the 27-year-old available for Saturday's visit of Bolton and next week's matches against Birmingham and Hull.

"Cole has had this knee cartilage problem for quite a while now and playing two games in four days caused it to flair up," O'Driscoll told the Bristol Evening Post.

"Rather than risk him at Burnley, we felt he would be better off resting. He will probably have an injection in it so that he can try and get back by the end of the week."

Skuse first injured his knee during the 2-0 home win over Watford on January 29 and missed the next six games.

The Bristolian returned against Brighton on March 5 and then featured against Derby and Sheffield Wednesday before suffering a recurrence of the problem on April 1 against the Owls.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
