Richards eyeing City comeback

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Micah Richards looks like making a timely return from injury to give the team a welcome boost at the back.

The 24-year-old has not played this season after injuring his ankle on Great Britain duty at the Olympics. So far City have conceded 14 goals in seven matches and have yet to keep a clean sheet. But Richards, who had an impressive run in City's Barclays Premier League-winning season, thinks he is almost ready to return.

"It's probably going to take about two more weeks," he said. "I'm happy with the progress made so far because it was quite a bad one, but I can't wait to get back in among the squad."
