Edwin van der Sar’s toe injury rules him out of tomorrow’s Champions League game against Roma.

The experienced Dutchman came off at half-time at Birmingham on Saturday and though his replacement Tomasz Kuszczak did a good job, the keepers’ absence does not bode well for United.

‘Edwin has a problem with his foot. Our medical team are taking care of the it,’ Fergie said.

He won’t play against Roma but Kuszczak has what it takes, according to Carlos Queiroz.

‘Tomasz made one very good save and showed why he is a United player,’ he said. Fergie added: ‘It’s a worry when you lose a man of his (VdS’s) experience but Tomasz Kuszczak is very able and I’m pleased we’ve got someone as good as that.’

Last season it would not have made much difference whoever had stood in goal against roma at Old Trafford. A repeat of that would be welcome.
