Buttner hopes for more Man Utd action tonight

Manchester United fullback Alexander Buttner hopes to see action with Champions League opponents Shakhtar Donetsk.

Buttner is hoping that in light of the Reds' recent qualification to the knockout stages, he may be given a chance to impress against the Ukrainians.

"It was fantastic to qualify for the last 16 - it's good for the club, the manager, the players and the fans. It's a huge competition and everyone wants to win this trophy," Büttner told ManUtd.com.

"Everyone was sharp and the whole team played well. We fought for every ball and played some good football. The confidence was really good throughout the team and we need to make sure we win the group now.

"I was pleased to get some minutes in such a big game and I hope to get some more in the next few matches," he added. "I am training hard every day and I hope to be involved in the games coming up. I'm waiting for my chance."
