Cole to be fit for Everton?

Having missed the three consecutive defeats last week with a hamstring injury, Andrew Cole is expected to be passed fit for this Sunday's game at home to Everton.
It will be a boost to get Cole back as his partnership with Darius Vassell was beginning to prosper before he went down injured and to me it is no coincidence that we have looked less potent and clinical up front in his absence. As gainly as he has tried, Antoine Sibierski is notn adequate replacement and both Bradley Wright-Phillips and Robbie Fowler are still stuck on the sidelines through injury as well.
The reserves continued their impressive start to the season with a win over Blackburn last night, although Steve Wigley is still hoping for more from his young charges who rank as one of the favourites for the title. Goals from top prospects Ishmel Miller and Micah Richards sealed the win.
For everyone who will wake up bright and early (well, not so bright) this Sunday and realise they have to head down to the ground for the 11:15 kick-off, rest assured as it's for the benefit of us the fans explained Stuart Pearce. You see, this extra Sky money means we can go out and buy players according to Psycho. Hmm, added to the money from the SWP sale we should have a nice bit of spending money tucked away for the January sales shouldn't we....
