Obertan eyes title run-in return

Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan is intent on taking part in the run-in after scoring twice in successive games for the reserves.

Obertan, who arrived from Bordeaux in the summer, has been out of the first team picture following the defeat by Everton in February.

However the 21-year-old believes his game is improving and he found the target for the reserves against Liverpool last night with manager Sir Alex Ferguson looking on.

Obertan told MUTV: "It is good for the confidence to score some goals and good when the manager is watching the game.

"There are four matches left in the Premier League so it would be nice to be able to have a few minutes on the pitch.

"It’s been a bit difficult the last couple of months but I’ve worked hard with the reserves and in training, and it is paying off."
