Niall Quinn lifted Manchester City off the bottom of the Premiership for the first time this season with a late goal that earned them a 1-0 win against Wimbledon at Maine Road last night.

The Irishman scored his first League goal of the campaign by chesting down Georgi Kinkladze's cross and evading two defenders before beating Paul Heald in the Wimbledon goal. With Coventry and Bolton both losing, City moved up to third from bottom.

Wimbledon had battled hard to halt their own slide towards the relegation zone, which has seen them take only one point from their last eight games.
