City secure comfortable win

Published Add your comment

Mark Hughes got his Manchester City reign off to a winning start in the unlikely surroundings of the Faroe Islands beating EB Streymur 2-0.

First-half goals from Martin Petrov and Dietmar Hamann gave City a competent victory in this UEFA Cup first qualifying round first leg, seemingly making the second leg at Barnsley on July 31 a formality.

Manager Hughes will now aim to move on from this chilly Atlantic outpost to send City on their way to a decent European run - something their fans have longed for.
