Man City blow as Bellamy ruled out with knee injury

Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy faces a spell on the sidelines through injury. Bellamy has been sent for scans on the injury and boss Mark Hughes admits the striker will be missing for two weeks at least.

Hughes said: "Craig Bellamy and Robinho won't be fit (to face Aston Villa).

"Craig got examined yesterday and he is having a scan today to allow the injury to settle down for 48 hours and those scans will be read.

"It is not an old injury. I saw it reported it was a reoccurrence of an injury he had before, it is not, it is a new injury.

"He has torn some fibres in his knee and obviously the extent of the injury will be shown in the scans.

"We just hope the best case scenario is probably two to three weeks."
