**The Citizens achieve victory in February, expressed as months of the determination step forward. This success is a crucial moment after a previous defeat to causing failure in the position occupied four large.
Goals from Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor sealed a workmanlike victory for Manchester City, who put defeat at Hull behind them with a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers.
Strike duo Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor might have scored the goals that leave City trailing fourth-placed Liverpool on goal difference, but there was no doubt Johnson was the real star.
While Vieira required no introduction on his home debut, Johnson remained a bit of an unknown in these parts. A new Manchester City star was born in winger Adam Johnson as the Blues nudged up towards the top four with victory over Bolton Wanderers.
It was Johnson who won the penalty that Tevez converted to put City ahead. And although fellow new-boy Patrick Vieira set up Adebayor to seal victory, it was Johnson who kept Bolton on the back foot and ensured good position.
Mancini was the right decision, Adam Johnson who recruited The Citizens at the last day of the transfer market in January from Middlesbrough to be the brains behind the first goal City.
The result means City only trail fourth-placed Liverpool on goal difference, while Bolton continue to dangle precariously over the drop zone.
