Martin Petrov's cool curler at Wigan secured an invaluable point last weekend. Post match, The Flying Bulgar again called for a place in Mark Hughes starting XI...
There's more of a conciliatory tone to Petrov's latest comments considering he dished out some mightily frustrated and fed up words earlier in the season.
He narked some of us with those comments as we'd seen City stick by the player through a serious knee injury last season. We know that on his day he is a class act and that Premier League defences are terrified of him when he is charging at them full tilt.
Petrov told the official site, not the nonsense that is the Daily Mirror as has been mistakenly reported elsewhere:
'I'm happy with my form. I'm a professional football player and I want to show the manager that I'm in good form and that I should have a place in this team. I'm happy here and I want to continue here.'

It's clear Petrov is hungry and the competition for places is intensifying at 5th placed City.
YOU are the gaffer. Would you give Rigsby the gloved thumbs up for Fulham?
