Van der Sar eyeing swift return

Van der Sar was replaced in goal by John O'Shea against Spurs
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is expected to return to action within a fortnight, despite breaking his nose in the win at Spurs last week.

The Dutchman was briefly knocked out and had to spend the night in hospital following an accidental collision with Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.

However, United expect him to be back in training by the start of next week.

That means that United number two Tomasz Kuszczak will deputise in goal against Charlton at the weekend.

The Pole is also likely to face Reading in the FA Cup fifth round tie on 17 February, but Van der Sar could pencil in a return for the Champions League trip to Lille three days later.

The 36-year-old has just signed a one-year extension to his Red Devils contract after impressing in the 18 months he has spent at Old Trafford since moving north from Fulham.
