Pellegrini has preferred Costel Pantilimon to the England international in the last month, with Hart dropped after his last-minute mistake allowed Fernando Torres to score the winner in City's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on 27 October.

Romania keeper Pantilimon has performed well in his place and kept his third clean sheet in five outings as City thrashed Tottenham 6-0 on Sunday.

"Joe Hart will play on Wednesday," he said.

Manchester City's game with Viktoria Plzen will be shown on Sky Sports 4 HD from 7:30pm on Wednesday.
