Manchester City 1-0 Bolton Wanderers

A first half goal from Felipe Caicedo was enough to give Manchester City a 1-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers on the final day of the season.

Despite the win, an impressive 13th at home this season, City finish 10th in the Premier League - one place lower than last season. Bolton end up nine points behind in a respectable 13th position.

Shaun Wright-Phillips delayed surgery on a knee injury to play in the game and took his place in a front three alongside Caicedo and Robinho.

For Bolton, Danny Shittu held off the returning Andy O'Brien to partner Gary Cahill in the centre of defence.

The goal came after just eight minutes when Robinho's quick free-kick caught the Bolton defence sleeping. The Brazilian found Stephen Ireland, who saw his chip helped across the face of goal by Micah Richards before powerful striker Caicedo tapped home.

Caicedo almost set up Robinho for a City second, but the Brazilian struck a post before visiting goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen continued his recent fine form with good saves from Wright-Phillips and the lively Robinho.

Bolton's best chance of the game came when Richards cleared a Cahill volley off the line after home keeper Shay Given's unconvincing punch.
