Roberto Mancini reveals that midfielder Jack Rodwell will return to action against Fulham this weekend.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has revealed that midfielder Jack Rodwell could play a part in this weekend's match against Fulham.

The former Everton player has failed to launch himself into the City first team due to a number of injuries since moving to the club in the summer.

"I am happy because I am sure Jack will be an important player for us in the future, because he is young," BBC Sport quotes Mancini as saying.

"If we have solved his problem, his hamstring injuries have been often, he will be an important player. Tomorrow he will be ready, but probably for 20 minutes, no more."

City currently sit seven points adrift of leaders Manchester United.
