Championship strugglers Crystal Palace host Cardiff this Saturday lunchtime, see the full BestPrice betting here – 12:45 SS1

Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed reports suggesting Wayne Rooney is carrying a knee problem.

Speculation had hinted that the in-form Manchester United striker was suffering with tendonitis.

However, Ferguson insists Rooney, who has 18 goals in his last 15 games, is fit and raring to go in Saturday’s Premier League encounter with Bolton.

“Wayne is fit and there’s nothing wrong with his knee,” the United boss told the club’s official website.

Ferguson has also revealed that Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are expected to feature at the Reebok Stadium, with both men having suffered injuries of late.

“Scholes is okay again after an ankle knock and Ryan is a further week on with his training,” he said.

“Whether I start him or not is another matter. But his and Scholes’ experience is invaluable at this time of year.”

United have also welcomed John O’Shea back to full training this week, after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a thigh problem.

“John O’Shea took part in a training session (on Thursday) for the first time and we expect him back at the start of April,” added the Scot.

“These are plus points for us at the moment because all season we’ve had to deal with defenders being injured all the time and that’s not easy.”
