Emmanuel Adebayor scored for the first time since his return from the African Nations Cup as Manchester City closed to within a point of fourth-spot following their 2-0 victory over Portsmouth.

But the striker was strong enough to clatter a fierce shot past David James to give City a 40th-minute lead before Vincent Kompany wrapped up victory with a firm header in first-half stoppage time.
