Micah Richards is in line for a playing return with Manchester City tomorrow.

The Daily Mail says Richards is back in the first team squad for Wednesday's Barclays Premier League game at home to Wigan.

Richards has not played since injuring knee ligaments last October and his return has been delayed by minor setbacks on two occasions.

However the 24-year-old right back will be in Roberto Mancini's squad for Wednesday's game and is expected to start the night on the bench.
