Manchester City defender Micah Richards is set for another month on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Richards suffered the problem on Olympic duty and Blues manager Roberto Mancini expected him to recover in time for Premier League encounter with Southampton.

However, the 24-year-old's recovery has not gone quite as well as planned.

"I think it will be three or four more weeks," said Mancini.
