United’s Norwegian striker will surely be at least on the bench on Wednesday against Benfica, according to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ole suffered a hamstring injury in the Champions League encounter at Copenhagen and he’s been unavailable ever since. He’s begun full training this week and now we’ll surely have at least one striker on the bench!

‘Ole will be on bench at least on Wednesday against Benfica. He started back training with us this week and I will certainly consider him.’ said Sir Alex.

That’s good to hear, as it was agony for me seeing our bench filled with defenders and Darren Fletcher in recent games. Now we have a genuine goal-grabber again so the number of our tactical options have definitely increased.
