The Gaffer's Sunderland Post Match Reaction
- City looked worn out at the end of the 46th game of the season. Micah's goal may prove to be absolutely crucial as we head into an invaluable break. Mark Hughes is chuffed...
'We had chances to win more comprehensively but towards the end we got a little bit nervous only because we obviously had a really hard game on Thursday.'
- Sunderland looked as if they were fighting as if their lives depended upon it and many of City's players looked fit to drop towards the end:
'Some of the guys were cramping up so we needed to make changes. Sunderland were always going to throw balls into our box and hope something would drop for them.
- City's form has certainly been erratic this season but the introduction of Nedum Onuoha and Shay Given has steadily led to a vast improvement in Skipper Richard Dunne and Micah Richards form. City have now only conceded 5 goals in 7 league games. Hughesy went on:
'Overall we're delighted with the win. That's six home wins on the bounce so we're delighted after a good result in terms of getting into the next round in Europe and then a win against a spirited Sunderland side.
'All in all it was a decent performance and we're in that top half again. We're looking forward to the games we have left.'
