Bellamy blow for Man City

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy looks certain to miss the next two games against Fulham on Sunday and the UEFA Cup second leg with Hamburg yesterday.

Bellamy suffered a recurrence of a knee injury in the 3-1 defeat by the Bundesliga side last night in the quarter-final first leg and is due to have a scan later today.

Benjani Mwaruwari also looks likely to be sidelined for a spell as he ruptured his thigh muscle.

Shaun Wright-Phillips (ankle) and Vincent Kompany (hamstring) are doubtful through injury but Nigel de Jong is available again after being ineligible for the cup tie.

Team (from): Given, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Zabaleta, Wright-Phillips, Elano, Ireland, de Jong, Robinho, Bojinov, Bridge, Garrido, Fernandes, Evans, Etuhu, Vassell, McGivern, Hart, Petrov.
