This way to the boys!

Finally a bit of good news on the United defensive injury front thanks to a report in the Manchester Evening News.

According to the M.E.N:

“Manchester United captain Nemanja is set to beef up the defence at West Ham on Saturday after a shock return to international duty.
But manager Sir will have to sweat on the Serbian coming through his country’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Estonia in Tallinn tonight after he joined up with his national colleagues.

Vidic had been ruled out of Serbia’s two qualifiers against Northern Ireland last Friday and the Estonia match.”

Should United’s skipper come through tonight’s game unscathed then there’s every reason to expect him back in action for The Reds at Upton on Saturday.

With this season’s defensive crisis almost rivalling last season’s United had been forced to yet again play in defence.

With Rio Ferdinand, Da Silva, and John O’Shea injured not to mention Jonny Evans serving a three match suspension, it’s been a testing time for Sir Alex’s team.

With Vidic returning and Ferdinand hopefully fit for the second Chelsea game, there may just be a small glimmer of light at the end of United’s injury clouds.
