Petrov sidelined

Martin Petrov is facing a couple of weeks on the sidelines after picking up a knee injury in the current international break.

The winger has a slight sprain of the inner ligament in the left knee and could be out for up to two weeks.

Petrov was with his national squad preparing for a couple of friendlies when he was forced to return back to City’s Carrington training ground, where he is now undergoing rehab work.

Disappointing news given his recent good form and the important trio of games on the horizon which he now looks set to miss.

It does however put Robinho a step closer to the starting line-up given Petrov is one of his main rivals for a position.
