City celebrate after battling victory at Wigan

After a dreadful first half, City took control in the second half, with Mario Balotelli scoring his first league goal of the season and James Milner chiming in with a screamer.

"We found it quite tough going in the first half, we had some stray passes but we ground it out in the second half and that's a great three points," Barry told Sky Sports.

"Credit to Wigan, we had to change things to get past them."

The goals came after some City fans had jeered boss Roberto Mancini's decision to substitute striker Sergio Aguero for defender Aleksandar Kolarov.

But Barry says the manager was proved correct and that City will have to take the rough with the smooth: "When the game is going our way the manager is the best tactician there is, that's the world we live in.

"A lot of teams come to Wigan and don't get results. These are vital points that have come our way."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
