Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Wayne Bridge is in line to make his comeback for Manchester City at Hull on Saturday.

Bridge has been out for two months after injuring his knee against former club Chelsea, since when his life has been turned upside down by the alleged relationship between his former girlfriend and John Terry.

Mancini has spoken with the 29-year-old left-back about his return but feels Bridge is in the right state of mind to play and intends to include him at the KC Stadium.

“Wayne can play on Saturday,” said Mancini.

“He has been working with us for 10 days now and there are no problems.”
