Manchester City defender Micah Richards is set for another month on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Richards suffered the problem on Olympic duty with Team GB and City manager Roberto Mancini expected him to recover in time for Sunday's Barclays Premier League encounter with Southampton, but the 24-year-old's recovery has not gone quite as well as planned.

"I think it will be three or four more weeks," said Mancini.
