Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is unlikely to feature in tomorrow’s UEFA Cup last-16 clash with Aalborg.

Some reports had suggested the Wales captain, who has been out since the start of the month with a knee injury, could make a surprise return in Denmark tomorrow.

Bellamy has travelled with the squad but is not expected to feature as City look to protect a 2-0 lead.

Vincent Kompany (toe) will be given a late fitness test while Robinho (ankle) has been passed fit. Nigel de Jong is not registered.

Provisional squad: Given, Hart, Schmeichel, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Bridge, Garrido, Zabaleta, Wright-Phillips, Elano, Caicedo, Ireland, Fernandes, Vassell, Weiss, Robinho, Evans, Bojinov, Berti, Etuhu, Bellamy.
