Hughes content with Citizens

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes was reasonably happy with his side's 2-0 home win over Aalborg in the first leg of their UEFA Cup second knockout round tie. Felipe Caicedo and Shaun Wright-Phillips struck in the first half at Eastlands to give City a cushion to take to Denmark, but Hughes felt his side could have scored more goals. He commented: "Ideally we would like to have put the game to bed. "We had enough chances to score more than we did, but we got a positive result and a clean sheet and overall it was a very good European performance. "Aalborg have to attack us now. I am sure that will provide us with opportunities and if we play as well next week as we did here, it will be very difficult for them. "We are in good shape. The aim has always been to get through to the next round. "Once you get through to the quarters and semi-finals, then you can start thinking about winning the whole thing."
