Mark Hughes might be tempted to name an unchanged line-up as Manchester City look to end an inconsistent season on a winning note against local rivals Bolton at Eastlands on Sunday.

With Shaun Wright-Phillips ruled out by a knee injury which is likely to require surgery this summer, Hughes does not have a huge number of options to choose.
