The stiffs are scheduled to meet Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday kick off 7pm weather permitting.

The last reserve game was 3-2 to Newcastle United on December 19 when Roy Keane made his long awaited comeback and Tuesday night should see the return of Nicky Butt.

"Nicky began football training with us in the latter part of the week and all being well he'll play against Sheffield Wednesday reserves next Tuesday evening," Ferguson told the Evening News.

"I have pencilled it in for him and we will see how he goes."
