Manchester United back-up goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard accepts he can hardly do any more to persuade Sir Alex Ferguson to pick him on a more regular basis.

Lindegaard made his sixth appearance of the season in Wednesday's 5-0 win at Fulham. Although the Denmark international conceded on his campaign debut against Benfica, he has not let a goal in since.

Yet it almost certainly will not prevent him from being dropped again on Boxing Day, when United take on relegation-threatened Wigan at Old Trafford. "I hope I am giving the manager a problem," he told MUTV.
