Hughes Frustrated By City Failings

FOOTBALL : Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has warned his team they must start sealing games once they get into winning positions.

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has warned his team they must start sealing games once they get into winning positions.
The Blues are now on a run of five successive draws thanks to a 3-3 thriller against Burnley at Eastlands. Although Hughes feels some represent a point gained, at Aston Villa for instance, others are definitely two dropped.
“It is frustrating and disappointing because we got ourselves into a winning position,” complained Hughes.
“We have to learn to see games out because we have drawn two games at home from winning positions.
“Maybe it was a consequence of the effort we put in before that, because we worked exceptionally hard to get ourselves in front.
“But we did not do the right things at the right times.”
It had all looked so good for City after they had recovered from that appalling start.
Graham Alexander drove home a penalty after #22million central defender Joleon Lescott had handled, then the impressive Steven Fletcher added a second.
Yet once Shaun Wright-Phillips had breathed new life into his team just before the break, a successful comeback mission always looked likely.
And with Kolo Toure and Craig Bellamy both finding the net before the hour mark, City looked set for the perfect send-off ahead of their trip to Abu Dhabi this week, where they will carry out some promotional work in addition to tackling the United Arab Emirates on Thursday.
