Goalkeeper Ben Foster will make his competitive debut for Manchester United on Saturday at Derby because Edwin van der Sar is injured and Tomasz Kuszczak is suspended.

Ben Foster will make his first-team bow for Manchester United at Pride Park on Saturday with Edwin van der Sar having failed to recover from the groin injury he suffered in United's FA Cup defeat by Portsmouth. The Dutchman's deputy, Kuszczak, came on as a substitute in that game but was red carded, so must sit out the Derby clash, giving 24-year-old Foster his opportunity.

Foster has been out for seven months recovering from knee ligament damage, but was back in action last week in a reserve team match.

Foster joined United from Stoke City in summer 2005, but was immediately loaned to Watford for two seasons. Because of that, and then his knee injury, has not played a competitive game for the Red Devils - until now.

Louis Saha could also be involved for United at Derby if he comes through today's training session without a hitch.

The French striker had to pull out of the Portsmouth cup tie last weekend after feeling pain in his knee during the pre-match warm-up.

However, manager Sir Alex Ferguson reported that Saha had trained well this week and could be ready to feature at Pride Park.

Have not really watched him play but already heard so much accolades about him ringing in my ears; almost deafening. Lol.

So would be most interesting tomorrow. Er... I will be looking out for his kicking first to see if it resembles anybody I know.:eek: :D ;)

Good luck, Ben!
For me van der Sar is almost (repeat, almost) past it and Kuszczak is a 'frangero", who likes to panic. My colleague from Poland tells me that in Polish Puszczak means a clutz or someone who always panics, so they always call him Thomasz Puszczak.

..... thought you light like that bit of silly trivia.

Anyway, I hope Ben foster can prove Fergie right and show that he is the best English goalkeeper.

He looked a superb prospect and would be challenging VdS this season but for his injury, hopefully he will make a complete recovery, as I cannot see Kuszczak becoming number one, and his distribution is very poor unlike Foster's who is Schmeichel like.

At last Foster gets his chance. Im not sure what some people are worried about.
He has played for 2 years in the Prem already, so a debut against Derby will be
just perfect for him.

Im with Dwarf on cracking out the Fosters cans :) The perfect tribute
