West Brom 2-1 Man City Highlights

Roman Bednar’s injury-time winner increased the pressure on Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, whose side remain in the Premier League drop zone.

1-0 L.Moore 69′

1-1 F.Caicedo 84′

2-1 R.Bednar 90′

An open first half saw Bednar hit the post before Luke Moore ran on to James Morrison’s pass to put bottom side West Brom ahead after 69 minutes.

City replied when Felipe Caicedo’s deflected backheel hit the post and bounced over the line off Scott Carson.

But Bednar won it when he rose unmarked to head home Gianni Zuiverloon’s cross.

Saturday’s results had left City in the bottom three for the first time this season and their recent slide down the table has inevitably raised question marks over Hughes’ future, despite protestations to the contrary from the powers that be at Eastlands.

The club’s new oil-rich Arab owners are likely to invest millions in strengthening the City squad in January but, with just one win in their last nine Premier League games, many fans are unconvinced that their current manager should still be in charge of the spending when the transfer window reopens.
