City are striker light in Austria

MANCHESTER City boss Roberto Mancini has just two strikers fit for tonight’s opening Europa League match at Red Bull Salzburg.

Emmanuel Adebayor has not recovered from the dead leg that kept him out at the weekend, meaning Mancini has only Carlos Tevez and Jo at his disposal. Centre-back Joleon Lescott is also absent but full-back Wayne Bridge is in line for his first start of the season after shaking off an ankle injury.
