Manchester City EDS tasted success and defeat in a matter of days as they faced Derby County and Bradford City in quick succession. 

Simon Davies' young Blues registered an impressive 4-1 win at home to the Rams before an U21 side succumbed to a 2-1 defeat in Yorkshire three days later.

On his return from injury it was Lukas Nmecha who stole the show at the Academy Stadium. Introduced at half time the forward netted a hat trick to announce his return in style.

In the midweek Checkatrade Trophy tie Davies named a young squad, which included three 16-year-olds, to face the high-flying League 1 outfit.

Adam Thompson and Alex Jones put the Bantams ahead in the first half before Rabbi Matondo pulled one back in what was a spirited second half performance.
