Fletcher confirmed as Man Utd starter for CL game

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Darren Fletcher will start Tuesday's UEFA Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow. However, Ferguson will make a late decision on Wayne Rooney's participation after his wife gave birth.

"Darren was a substitute on Saturday and will play on Tuesday," said Ferguson.

"I think most people recognise Fletcher as a big game player. We've been aware of that for quite a while. Now there's an acceptance among most people that he's a very important player for us.

"He has been missed in some key games recently so it will be good to have him back."
