Man City boss Mancini sweating on Bellamy injury

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has concerns over the injury suffered by Craig Bellamy.

The injury is not thought to be serious but it raises questions over Bellamy's availability during what Mancini, the City manager, described yesterday as a "crucial" month for his team in their pursuit of a top-four finish.

Bellamy attended the London clinic yesterday morning of Andy Williams, the knee specialist whom he has consulted regularly in recent years, after experiencing discomfort during City's 2-1 defeat by Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday, when he was substituted after an hour.

"I hope it is only a little problem with his knee," Mancini said. "I don't know how bad it is."
