Looking back at events - good or bad - that happened on this day in City's history...

Saturday 10 April 1980

City’s long winless run continues with a dismal 0-0 draw away to Stoke City at The Victoria Ground – the sixteenth match without a victory for Tony Book and Malcolm Allison’s free-falling team. The point keeps the Blues just out of the bottom three and four points clear of nearest rivals Derby County but three wins and two draws in the final six games sees the City avoid the drop comfortably.

Concern: Malcolm Allison and Tony Book

City’s bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League takes a blow as Wolves take a point away from the City of Manchester Stadium. Indeed, it could have been worse as Wolves go 2-0 up - one an absolute howitzer from former favourite Mark Kennedy - before the hosts rally through goals from Nicolas Anelka and Antoine Sibierski to go in level at the break.

David James saves a second-half penalty before Henri Camera restores Wolves lead 12 minutes from time but Shaun Wright-Phillips levels in the 90th minute to rescue a point.

City get off to the best possible start in a bid to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit against Liverpool at the Etihad. Gabriel Jesus scores after two minutes but, crucially, Leroy Sane’s goal just before the break is ruled out for offside – TV replays show James Milner had headed the ball back towards his own goal meaning Sane couldn’t have been offside. It’s a hammer blow, and Liverpool score twice after the break to progress to the Champions League semi-finals.
