The two sides meet in Matchday Two of our Northern Section Group B clash at the Academy Stadium.
Gareth Taylor's side currently top the group, following our 5-1 triumph over Everton, while Durham sit third, having earned a point from a 2-2 draw with Manchester United, before the Reds earned a bonus point by edging the penalty shoot-out.
City head into the game on the back of a mixed run of results and Sunday's FA Cup defeat at home to Chelsea.
Durham are top of the Championship, having enjoyed a fine start to 2021/22 with 18 points from their opening seven games, winning all bar one.
The two sides have not met since July 2015 when Nick Cushing's side stormed to a thumping 5-0 home win.
