Champions League team news

Bellamy: on the bench?
Shay Given looks set to start in goal and Andy Griffin has recovered from a cold, while Craig Bellamy is almost certain to have to settle for a place on the bench after recovering from a knee injury.

The likely starting line-up is: Given; Griffin, Hughes, Dabizas, O’Brien; Solano, Viana, Speed, Jenas; Shearer, Dyer.

The news is less good for Feyenoord boss Bert van Marwijk, who is definitely without Shinji Ono (suspended) and the injured Pierre van Hooijdonk, Ramon van Haaren and Ebi Smolarek.

He also has doubts about the fitness of the Chong-Gug Song, Thomas Buffel,
Patrick Paauwe and the excellent Paul Bosvelt.

For those of you who have been on Mars or on drugs for the last couple of weeks. A draw will mean we go into the UEFA Cup but a win will mean that we qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League, as long as Dynamo Kyiv do not beat Juventus.
