Wickham was not in the starting lineup Saturday, but entered in just after halftime for Darren Fletcher.

Wickham was a rare sub today and was in an ornery mood getting a yellow card and committing four fouls. This was probably just a day off for the striker and he gave way to William Buckley who was ineffective in this match. Look for Wickham to get back in the starting XI next weekend against Crystal Palace.
