Youths travel to Manchester City
Manchester City’s under-18s sit just two points behind leaders Manchester United and with a game in hand. Today we travel to their academy stadium to play them for the first time this season.
City were our opponents in last season’s FA Youth Cup quarter-final. They beat us 1-0 at the same stadium in what was the last occasion our under-18 team played in front of any permitted spectators.
We followed that game up with a defeat at Sheffield Wednesday before beating Barnsley on 10th March last year; the season was curtailed at that point and all this season’s games have been played behind closed doors.
We can’t look back at the home game against City this season; that is still to come next month in what will be our final game of the season.
It’s been a good season overall with eight wins and nine defeats to date, but City have been beaten just once in 19 games and that against leaders United.
Today’s game kicks off at 2 p.m.Share this page :
