Manchester United: Face Ukrainians on Thursday

The 27-year-old had been pencilled in for a return from another knee injury but now looks likely to wait a little longer for his first appearance since the November win over Wigan early in Neil Lennon’s tenure.

Adam Bogdan was preferred ahead of Andy Lonergan in goal or Wanderers in the 3-0 Easter Monday victory over Cardiff and the Hungarian should keep his spot now loanee Ben Amos has returned to Manchester United.

Adam Le Fondre was ineligible to play against Cardiff so he gives Lennon another option in attack, but Craig Davies could miss the rest of the season after pulling out of training on Thursday, while Wanderers are still missing the likes of Marc Tierney (broken leg), Max Clayton (knee), Zach Clough (shoulder) and David Wheater (hamstring).

Norwich will be without in-form midfielder Bradley Johnson as he begins a two-match suspension.

Johnson scored all three goals as the Canaries beat Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 and 2-0 respectively over Easter to make it 13 for the season.

But he picked up his 10th booking against the Owls, which means he will also miss the trip to former club Leeds on Tuesday night.

Nathan Redmond has been on the bench for the last three games and will be pushing for a return to the starting line-up while Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, who made his first appearance on Monday since October, is also bidding for a start.
