Draw enough to please City

07 Dec 2008 - 11:15:01

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes admitted he was content with the point gained from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Fulham.

City were without a host of injured stars - including £32million Brazilian Robino due to an ankle knock - but took an early lead through Benjani Mwaruwari's header at Craven Cottage.

However, they were unable to hold onto their lead after Jimmy Bullard equalised on the half-hour mark as they failed to secure the three points needed to claw their way back into the top half of the table.

It was City's second draw in four days following their goalless UEFA Cup stalemate with Paris St Germain in midweek.

"We'll take that," admitted Hughes. "It's a good point as they've had a decent run of late.

"We had 12 or so senior players out and played in midweek but I think that's the first point after a European date so we are reasonably happy.

"We looked quite comfortable and were never under sustained pressure from Fulham, so in the end we're maybe a little disappointed we couldn't nick the three points."
