In a game of few chances, both sides had penalty appeals waved away by referee Jeff Winter - with Portuguese forward Boa Morte adamant he should have been given a spot-kick following his tussle with Sylvain Distin.
"I was about to make a pass for McBride when he caught my right ankle," said Boa Morte. "I think it was a foul, definitely.
"A free kick or a penalty, yes definitely.
"I don't know what the referee's position was."
Commenting on the game, Boa Morte added: "We knew Man City would come back with confidence, as they had a very good game against Manchester United.
"Our aim was to keep a clean sheet and try to score a goal."
