Manchester City Wait On Bellamy

Hughes hopeful Welsh striker will be fit to face Wigan

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes is facing an anxious wait on the fitness of in-form striker Craig Bellamy, who was injured last weekend whilst playing for Wales against Finland.

Bellamy scored in his country’s two-one defeat against Finland last Saturday, but picked up a groin strain during the game, and is now a doubt to face Wigan on Sunday.

Hughes said of the striker, who has scored three goals in his last three City appearances:

"Craig is a bit of a doubt but we will give everyone maximum time to help their chances of playing. There is still time before the game for these things to be resolved.

"He has been outstanding and you want two outstanding players for every position. In most positions we have the quality we need.

"If Craig is not available it means someone else will have to step up and be an influence on the game."

City could be without up to seven first team players for Sunday’s visit to the DW Stadium, as Kolo Toure, Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott, Martin Petrov and Nigel De Jong all picked up knocks during the international break, and Hughes is also without long-term absentee Robinho.

Manchester City are 3/4 (Bluesq) to win at Wigan on Sunday
