Watch the extensive highlights from City Under-18s' FA Youth Cup victory over Reading.

In our first outing at the Joie Stadium in the FA Youth Cup this season, Ben Wilkinson‘s side did not want to disappoint the home crowd. 

And they definitely put on a show in the opening 20 minutes, dominating possession mixed with two early goals.

Jaden Heskey put City ahead on his return to action after a brief spell on the side line before Emilio Lawrence doubled City’s lead. 


But Reading remained resilient and showed why they had made it to the fifth round of the prestigious competition. 

Their relentless high press caught City off guard and Kiyan Coke-Miles-Smith was able to score for the visitors and put pressure on City for the remaining 20 minutes of the match.

Ben Wilkinson‘s youngsters, however, were able to hold off Reading to secure our place in the quarter-finals of the competition where we will face Tottenham Hotspur.
