Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Wayne Bridge and Stephen Ireland will be fit for Saturday's derby clash with Manchester United at Eastlands.
Bridge has been out with a hernia problem and Ireland an ankle injury, but they have trained this week and Mancini confirmed they are both fit for selection, while Brazilian full-back Silvinho is doubtful with a calf injury as City face up to what their manager believes is a hugely significant run-in.
"These are important games," said Mancini. "The last month of the season will be fantastic for us. After Saturday we have four games left and they are going to be the most important in the history of the club."
