Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has confirmed striker Craig Bellamy is almost certainly out for the rest of the season because of a knee injury.
Bellamy, who arrived from West Ham in January, has missed the last three matches after suffering the setback during the UEFA Cup quarter-final first-leg defeat at Hamburg.
Hughes told www.mcfc.co.uk: "Craig has got to have complete rest for two weeks then he comes back for strength work. Hopefully he might get the last couple of games, but the probability is that he won't."
