Manchester United v BURNLEY: New boss Brian Laws short at the back for Old Trafford bow

15 January 2010 12:49
Brian Laws faces major problems in central defence for his first match in charge of Burnley at Manchester United.

Skipper Steven Caldwell (groin) is definitely out while Clarke Carlisle is rated as only 50-50 with a side strain. Meanwhile Andre Bikey is absent on Africa Cup of Nations duty.

Michael Duff is expected to continue at centre-back and if Carlisle fails to make it that could mean a league debut for young Canadian defender David Edgar, signed in the summer from Newcastle.

Sidelined: Caldwell's groin problem prevents him from facing United



Team (from): Jensen, Carlisle, Edgar, Eagles, Alexander, Elliott, McDonald, Fletcher, Duff, Nugent, Blake, Thompson, Penny, Guerrero, Gudjonsson, Kalvenes, Eckersley.
