Robinho looks set to make his comeback for Manchester City against Hull on Saturday.

The Brazil forward has not played for the club since August after suffering a stress fracture of the ankle, but he did join up with his country earlier this month and City first team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki believes that may have helped Robinho's progress.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "Robi is looking really good. Things are looking very promising for him in terms of the weekend and he should be up for selection."

He added: "We are pleased, after all the speculation when he went with Brazil, he didn't play for them because he wasn't ready.

"He had good training and good treatment with them and has come back to us looking sharper by the day."
