Wolves; we're happy to allow us plenty of space and possession. After going behind were happy to continue in this vein. Rarely mustered any sort of threat going forward until the final give minutes when what looked to be a great save from Shay Given prevented them equalising.

City; comfortable in possession, some neat build up play and look threatening with our attacking options. A well taken goal by Adebayor and the result of some good inter-play with him and Tevez. This is the end product when you spend £50 million on two strikers. Had further opportunities and look likely to add to our score.
What's in store; Wolves will be happy to keep the scoreline at 1-0 to then push on over the final stages of the game. They cannot afford as much space and time on the ball though as we will be certain to add a second, if not more. I'm still sticking with my 2-0 prediction.
p.s. The stories suggesting the Lescott signing is imminent are gathering pace.
