No Giggs, Saha or Neville for Denmark trip

Manchester United will have to cope without a key trio of injured players if it is to extend its perfect record in the Champions League against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday.

Ryan Giggs, Louis Saha and captain Gary Neville are sidelined for the English league leader's attempt to clinch qualification from Group F.

"It's a blow not to have such experienced players but we've got a big squad," United manager Alex Ferguson said. "But we do have players like Wes Brown and Gabriel Heinze to come in so things are not so bad."
United leads the Group F standings with a maximum nine points from three games and beat Copenhagen 3-0 two weeks ago. The Danish team has yet to score in its first season in Europe's top club competition.

Neville is suffering a recurrence of a calf problem which has plagued him for much of the season. Giggs is out after reporting a hamstring injury, while France striker Saha has been ruled out with a knee problem.
