Kompany Faces Late Fitness Test

Manchester City midfielder Vincent Kompany is expected to face a late fitness test prior to Thursday's UEFA Cup second leg tie against Omonia Nicosia.

The 22-year-old suffered a slight knee problem against Wigan on Sunday, but having had a few days rest the 6ft 4in starlet should shake-off the niggle in time.

Meanwhile Martin Petrov (hamstring) and Michael Johnson (groin) are definitely out.

If in doubt, dont risk him. He's proving too valuable to be out for any length of time, so we shouldn't gamble.

Kompany and Johnson out? That means Didi Hamann had better get himself an early night with a cocoa tonight. In fact I hope he's already there! If there was a game when we could rest Kompany it would probably be this one, anyway. It alters my team selection seriously if the big Belgian is not in the frame. I would now play Fernandes as well. Ball instead of Garrido. I've got my fingers crossed he can make it.

Thought Hughes has already said he is ok?

if he's out we will miss him.......this is one position we need a class Jan signing to cover when he is out as well as to partner him......

It is expected that he will be fit, I hope so, he has become vital for City, but has not played well recently, but that may be down to closer marking by the opposition. He is one of our better buys.
