Richards plays down injury

BY foxsports • September 7, 2011

The 23-year-old pulled out of the Three Lions squad ahead of Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales after feeling a slight hamstring twinge. Richards claims the move was more precautionary, though, and he does not expect to miss any Premier League action. He told City's official website: "I missed some games last season with a similar problem and thought it best to be as cautious as possible. "I have had the injury looked at and I am confident I will be available for the Wigan game at the weekend."
