United have been boosted by the news that Rio Ferdinand did NOT break his foot in the 2-2 draw at the Riverside.

A club spokesman told www.manutd.com

‘Rio went for a scan on Monday and we can confirm that he has not suffered any break.’

Though it is still unclear how long he will be sidelined, the news is a welcome one, especailly when you consider talismanic Serb Nemanja Vidic is also sidelined.

Sir Alex is expected to reveal the likely timeline for Rio’s comeback in his Pre-Match conference tommorow, but for now it is surely good news.

More to follow.
