Man City boss Eriksson concerned facing Wigan's Heskey

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson expects his defence to be given a hard time by Emile Heskey on his comeback game for Wigan Athletic tomorrow.

Eriksson said: "I expect a very difficult game and I think Emile Heskey is back and after the way he started the season he is very important for them.

"It's good to see Heskey playing good football again and when he played for England he did very well. So that's one more obstacle for us.

"Heskey has always been a good footballer and I like him as a player and a person, he's a very good man, he did a good job when I was with England more or less every time."
