Lescott out for 4-5 weeks

Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Lescott's hamstring injury will put him out for between four and five weeks:
He said: "I think there is a good chance that Joleon could play in the last two weeks of the season. Javi played well at Fulham but we may need a few players to come into the side.
This is a real blow. After a difficult start he's probably been our best defender this season - certainly since he came back from his knee injury in January. We now face our run-in, including games with Manchester United and Arsenal, without him. So it's Kolo Touré and Vincent Kompany at centre back and Javi Garrido at left back for the forseeable future.

It's also going to jeapordise Lescott's place on the plane to South Africa, which is itself a real shame.
