Brian Barry-Murphy's side came into the meeting buoyed by having scored nine goals in our last two games and were looking to extend our winning run in all competitions to five.
The last time the teams met, City won this fixture 3-1 in April and in doing so took a giant stride towards our third successive PL2 title.
Victory for the hosts would us them record back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.
However standing in our way was a Chelsea side who would prove to be more than difficult opponents after their third place finish last term.
But who came out on top?
