Robinho on way back

Hughes says that we should get him some time in November:

"There is a possibility that Robi will be on the bench for Scunthorpe, but it might be a bit soon and I don't like to throw players in before they've had games in training or in the reserves.

"We had to throw Vinnie Kompany in because of the circumstances but ideally he'd have had more time, and with the options we've got we can afford to give Robi some more time."

His main problem will be unseating Craig Bellamy from the left wing position. And the Welshman is on the way back from an injury of his own:

He said: "He's been working with the physios and he's done OK, he'll be back in training with the group on Friday with a view to him being available for selection at the weekend."

The competition between those two will be one of the fascinating stories of the Autumn. This is how I think it will go down.
