DARREN ANDERTON has come to the England coach Glenn Hoddle's aid by praising the faith healer, Eileen Drewery, for helping his latest recovery from injury.

Hoddle's use of Drewery has caused concern among Football Association officials, but she has received unqualified praise from Anderton, who attributes his early recovery from a knee injury to her healing methods.

"I saw Eileen a couple of times after the injury and that helped," he said. "I am very happy. I thought it would be another long one but I was back in two-and-a-half weeks."

Bobby Gould yesterday included Robbie Savage in his squad for Wales' European Championship qualifiers in Denmark on 10 October and at home to Belarus on 14 October.

The Leicester midfielder has been forgiven for his indiscretions prior to the game against Italy earlier this month, when he upset his manager by making allegedly abusive remarks about the Italians in a television interview.

WALES SQUAD: P Jones (Southampton), Ward (Notts County), Crossley (Nottingham Forest); Symons (Fulham), Williams (Wolves), Coleman (Fulham), Barnard (Barnsley), Melville (Sunderland), Johnson (Nottingham Forest), Hughes (Southampton), Speed (Newcastle), Savage (Leicester), Pembridge (Benfica), Blake (Bolton), Giggs (Manchester Utd), Robinson (Charlton), Saunders (Sheffield Utd), Hartson (West Ham), Roberts (Norwich), Trollope (Fulham).
