Man Utd No2 Queiroz admits likely Van der Sar absence

Manchester United assistant boss Carlos Queiroz admits Edwin van der Sar is likely to miss this weekend's clash with Derby due to a groin injury.

"He started to feel it after a couple of minutes (against Portsmouth) when he was striking the ball," Queiroz told manutd.com. "At half-time we decided there was no chance he could keep going."

Van der Sar's deputy Tomasz Kusczak came on at half-time for his 13th appearance of the season - unlucky for him as he was later sent off in the match's decisive moment.

"We accept the penalty against us," said Queiroz, after Kuszczak conceded a decisive spot-kick.

"It was a one-on-one situation and unfortunately Tomasz touched the player (Milan Baros)."
