  • As the referee moves his whistle to his lips, Mancini will be a relieved man after two weeks of disappointment for his side.

  • The hosts fire several long balls forward for Rodallega to chase but all he does is give away a foul in the air in the dying embers of this encounter.

  • Probably too little, too late but the home side press with earnest as City's defence is called into late action.

  • City calm things down as Mancini's troops seem to play for time with the scoreline in their favour.

  • The Cottagers press for the equaliser but Hart marshals his defence to withstand the late flurry.

  • Finally a goal ahead in the match, City push even harder for the killer blow and deliver the ball for their three-pronged attack of Aguero, Balotelli and Dzeko.

  • Within 60 seconds of coming on, Dzeko smashes the ball into the back of the net after the Cottagers fail to clear the danger of City's free-kick into the box from the left.

  • After a quiet day on the park, Javi Garcia earns a break with Edin Dzeko taking to the field.

  • After a lengthy delay, Balotelli finally steps up to take the free-kick for City but he fires it straight into the wall.

  • Karagounis's first touch since his arrival is to give away a penalty ouside the box.

  • City inside the Cottagers half and making a concerted effort around the penalty area as they probe for an opening.

  • It's slowed down a bit as both sides look to catch their breath for the closing encounter of this tight affair in the capital.

  • Balotelli, again, with a long range shot off target as Baird makes way for veteran Giorgos Karagounis.

  • City come again as the Cottagers prepare themselves for a gut-busting final ten minutes of regulation time.

  • The visitors are camped inside the home side's half, with Baird chasing at shadows trying to intercept a loose pass.

  • City seem to be concentrating most of their effort on getting the ball up to Balotelli, although Toure tries to make rare run down the left but to no avail.

  • The home side withstand City's latest barrage, but just barely, and looked to launch one of their own down the right wing through Damien Duff.

  • Samir Nasri comes on for Barry just as City put the foot on the gas with their attacking intent, Schwarzer and his defenders called into action several times at the back in quick succession.

  • The Citizens consolidate possession and try to re-build their attacking momentum.

  • The Cottagers now with some time on the ball and look to crack on from the halfway line.
