Petrov poised to boost Citizens

30 Mar 2009 - 11:35:37

Long-term injury absentee Martin Petrov has handed Manchester City a timely boost by returning to training.

The 30-year-old Bulgaria international winger has been sidelined by knee ligament damage since October and has made only a handful of appearances for the Citizens this season.

However, boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website: "He's on track now.

"There was a bit of concern a couple of weeks ago about the knee, but the specialist found it was just the stitching inside the knee.

"Maybe it was irritating the ligament, but he had an injection popped into it and that cleared it up.

"Now it's just a case of getting games into him. He's a fit guy and not the type to put too much weight on. Hopefully he'll be an option very soon."

Petrov has scored seven goals in 46 appearances for City since his arrival from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2007.
