Test for Tevez ahead of Rovers clash

Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez faces a late fitness test ahead of the Premier League match against Blackburn on Saturday at Eastlands.

Tevez suffered a knock in midweek when Argentina defeated Spain in a friendly and is doubtful for his club's match.

Micah Richards is in contention for a place after shaking off a chest infection that caused him to drop out of the England Under-21 squad.

Mario Balotelli, Aleksandar Kolarov, Jerome Boateng and Wayne Bridge remain sidelined through injury.

City (from): Hart, Given, Richards, Zabaleta, Lescott, K Toure, Kompany, Milner, Wright-Phillips, Johnson, Barry, Silva, Vieira, De Jong, Y Toure, Tevez, Santa Cruz, Adebayor, Jo, Logan, Boyata.
