Sparky: Stay on the ball.

MANCHESTER City boss Mark Hughes has cautioned against his side dismissing Bolton as long-ball merchants.

After successfully dispatching Stoke on home soil last weekend, City now face another side who prefer the aerial approach.

But Hughes thinks there is a difference. Whereas Stoke are very much out of the 1980s Wimbledon mould, the former Wales manager feels Bolton have much more in their armoury.

Nicolas Anelka may have gone but Megson's side still have players of quality.

"Bolton have a way of playing that is well known and has continued in a similar vein since Gary Megson came in," said Hughes.

"But they are more than just a side that knocks it into the channels. They have quality players as well."
