Pearce hails Fowler for selection riddle

Manchester City Stuart Pearce manager believes Robbie Fowler gave the perfect response to being left out of the team in the derby.

Fowler, who scored a hat-trick against Scunthorpe in the FA Cup the previous week, came off the bench to find the target in the defeat of Manchester United.

Pearce told BBC GMR: 'If a forward scores three goals, he's got the right to look me in they eye and say ' what are you doing leaving me out again?'

'I have to make those calls. I felt I had to show some loyalty to Darius Vassell and Andy Cole.

'When I spoke to Robbie on Friday morning and told him I was going with the other two, he didn't say a word. He just walked out and he has answered me once again with that goal.'

Defender Richard Dunne is scheduled to have a scan on his knee after limping off at Eastlands.
