City claim comfortable cushion

Published Add your comment

First-half goals from Felipe Caicedo and Shaun Wright-Phillips proved enough to give Manchester City a healthy 2-0 lead to take into the second-leg of their UEFA Cup tie with Aalborg next week.

Aiming to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in 30 years, the Blues were deserved winners and really should have grabbed a bigger lead for the trip to Denmark.

But two should be enough after Caicedo gave them an eighth-minute lead before Wright-Phillips rocketed home a classy second on the half hour.
