Manchester United may have to give Ben Foster his competitive debut against Derby County in the wake of Edwin van der Sar's groin injury and Tomasz Kuszczak's automatic suspension.

If van der Sar isn't fit for Saturday, then Foster's return to action for the reserves last week could prove to be perfectly timed.

Assistant manager Carlos Queiroz said van der Sar sustained his injury early in the match against Portsmouth.

"He started to feel it after a couple of minutes when he was striking the ball," reported Queiroz.

"At half-time we decided there was no chance he could keep going."

Van der Sar's deputy Tomasz Kusczak came on at half-time for his 13th appearance of the season - unlucky for him as he was later sent off in the match's decisive moment.

"We accept the penalty against us," said Queiroz, after Kuszczak conceded a decisive spot-kick.

"It was a one-on-one situation and unfortunately Tomasz touched the player (Milan Baros)."

ManUtd.com will bring you news of van der Sar's injury as soon as it's confirmed from Carrington Road.

I've already commented about this in another two threads, so I cba to type it again.

But its just the numbers which worry me. If Foster can't continue that long because the injury affects him or his fitness, and VDS is still injured, will it then be Heaton?

Yes, or Zieler. Altho the former will be the more possible choice ;)
Yeah. In an ideal World, you need 3 good keepers. We have a World Class Keeper (VDS), a very good goalkeeper (TK) and a great keeper with the potential to be World Class (BF)

Looking at that, you would think we would be ok for goalkeepers, on quality and numbers.

And then something like this happens. :confused:

Just shows that you need 3 keepers.

i just hope edwins fit, if not i hope foster can do the business against derby. if he lets some easy shots and we lose or draw and miss out going 1 point clear, i will be VERY angry, especialy playing derby. but he's a good kid and if he does play will have a lot of pressure on his shoulders.
