AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti admits he will continue to use Pippo Inzaghi sparingly this season.

Milan are short of striker options ahead of tonight's big game against Roma and Ancelotti said: "Alberto (Gilardino) is in fine form and the two goals in the Champions League gave him extra confidence. As for Pippo Inzaghi, I think it is necessary to use him sparingly and not let him play too much. In any case, he knows when he has to be decisive. Ronaldo is not ready yet, we'll see if he can join the squad on Thursday."
