Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand could face Roma in the Champions League tomorrow at Old Trafford despite suffering a foot injury in the draw at Middlesbrough.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson will make a decision in the morning over Ferdinand´s fitness. Should the England star fail to make it then either Gary Neville or Mikael Silvestre are poised to return to the team for this quarter-final second leg match.

Ferguson said: "I am hoping Rio will play. His scan was clear, that was the important thing."
