Sunday November 28, 2010Micah's Say...Stoke City v Manchester City

By Rhonda Richards | In Micah's Say

Micah was satisfied with a point as Manchester City’s clash with Stoke City ended in a 1-1 draw, despite the fact that the Eastlanders came so close to three points.

A tense clash between the two sides saw Micah give City the lead with 10 minutes remaining with a fine individual effort, collecting the ball from James Milner and turning his man before slotting the ball home.

However, as the travelling support prepared to celebrate the win, Tuncay’s clever back-heel set Matthew Etherington free and the winger equalised with an adept finish.

But the 22-year old believes a point away at Stoke is a decent result: “I think we dug in deep today, it’s a hard place to come.

“Stoke created a lot of chances (in the first half). They had one cleared off the line as well in the second half.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game and like I said before I think 1-1 was a good result.

“It was a bit disappointing how it happened but we will learn from this and we’ll take our point.”

Despite the momentary set-back, Micah is also confident that City can achieve their goals this season.

“I think the money they’ve spent, the quality that we’ve got in the team I think the top four is a must really for this season,” the England defender added.

“I think that we can achieve our goals.”
