FORMER Sheffield United manager Bryan Robson is fit and well - and forecasting a cracking end to the Premier League campaign.

Robson, who was in charge at Bramall Lane in 2007-8, underwent surgery 13 months ago, for throat cancer.

But he is now back in the media limelight, predicting “more twists and turns” in the Premier title race before one of the Manchester clubs is crowned champions.

Former Red Devils’ skipper Robson is backing the side which keeps a cool head in next Monday’s derby to triumph.

Robson said: “Three months ago City were eight points clear with the home derby to come. But it turned around, United went five points in front and now it’s changed around again with City back in it. City are back in form but on their day United are a match for anyone. They have loads of experience for the big games and for me it’s about who is going to handle the occasion the best.”
