Website F.A. Prem tells us:

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed skipper Roy Keane and Nicky Butt should be fit to face West Brom on Saturday.

Meanwhile Keane himself, on the official site, is a little more cautious:

“It's just a bit of a hamstring strain. I felt it after about half an hour of the Portsmouth game and I thought at half-time that I didn't want to make it any worse. It didn't feel right so I came off. It's still a bit sore now so we'll just have to wait and see how it goes. I've had hamstring strains in the past and you think you're better and come back too early, then you end off worse than you were at the start so I just have to be careful.”

"The key word at the moment is patience over the next few days and we'll see what happens. It's frustrating."
