Ferguson waits on winger

Sir Alex Ferguson must decide if Nani is fit enough for Manchester United's trip to West Brom, but it comes too soon for Paul Scholes.

The United chief has been without Portuguese winger Nani over the festive period due to a minor hip complaint and he refused to risk him in Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at Birmingham.

However, Ferguson must decide whether the player is ready for the trip to the Hawthorns on Saturday or if he should hold him back until Stoke's visit on Tuesday.

Meanwhile veteran midfielder Scholes will not feature due to the groin injury which has ruled him out since the Champions League victory at Rangers on November 24. However, Ferguson is confident the 35-year-old will be back in training at some point next week.

"Paul had a little recurrence of the groin injury," said Ferguson.

"We just told him to have a complete break, which is what he has done.

"Hopefully that break will get rid of the injury problem through rest and we will have him back training sometime next week."

Darren Fletcher could win a recall to the starting XI as Scholes' absence now coincides with the loss of Park Ji-sung, who will be missing for the whole of January as he competes in the Asia Cup for South Korea.
