City's Elite Development Squad fought back to claim a deserved draw in a pulsating clash at the Academy Stadium.
Seeking a win that would have taken us top of the table, Enzo Maresca's side suffered a first half setback when Rovers took a 17th minute lead through Samuel Burns.
However, City turned up the pressure after the break and gained a deserved equaliser from close range through Knight after James McAtee's shot was parried.
And though Knight was denied the chance to fire us ahead by a professional foul 10 minutes from time, the point was enough to move City into second place in the PL2 table.
