Man City defender Lescott happy to stay and fight for place

Joleon Lescott says he's happy to fight for his place at Manchester City.

The popular City centre-back has had to be patient in his effort to reclaim a first-team place this season, though with 19 appearances in total so far, he has never really been out of the first-team picture.

"Yeah, I've not really been that far away from the team and I've been involved with most of the games we've played this month," he told City's website.

"I may not have started every match, but I've featured in most and played a part when I've been called upon."
