Micah Richards has handed Manchester City a boost ahead of the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United after returning to training following a hamstring injury.
After Carlos Tevez was ruled out of the Wembley tie after picking up a similar injury in City's defeat to Liverpool, the news of Richards' recovery comes as welcome news for Roberto Mancini.
The England under-21 player wasn't expected to be available for the tie against United after getting injury on international duty, but Mancini is relieved to have the defender back.
"Micah Richards is available," said Mancini.
"He trained two days ago and again yesterday. He will be okay."
