Barcelona No2 Roura: Vilanova in dugout today

Barcelona No2 Jordi Roura says coach Tito Vilanova will be in the dugout today for the derby with Espanyol.

Vilanaova has been given the all-clear by doctors to take part.

"Tito will be on the bench," said Roura. "He still has to undergo treatment but he is in good spirits and very strong, and that's the important thing.

"It's not a normal situation but it has to be done. I'm looking forward to not coming (to a press conference) so often because that will mean that Tito is here."
