Micah Richards is given a start for Manchester City's second string following a knee injury.

Defender Micah Richards has been included in the Manchester City development side's starting lineup for this afternoon's clash against Bolton Wanderers.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined with a knee injury that required surgery since October.

However, he has given an indication that he could feature before the end of the campaign by being named in the team for today's match.

Brazilian full-back Maicon has also been given a starting role.
