City u18s v Crystal Palace: Match preview



City under 18s are back in action on Saturday morning, taking on Crystal Palace at Platt Lane.

Adam Sadler’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways after the 3-2 defeat to Fulham at Motspur Park last weekend.

Despite the scoreline, there were many positives for the team to take from the performance – not least the two goal cameo from Aaron Nemane (pictured above) who only turned 15 this week.

Joshua Murray also stepped up from the under-16s to make his debut for the 18s and it will be interesting to see if him and Nemane will retain their places in the squad.

They face a Palace side without a win the league but Sadler will be aware that the Londoners are a dangerous proposition, especially as they've found the back of the net 10 times in five games.

City are third, trying to stay in touch with the West London duo of Fulham and Chelsea who are running away with National Group 3 at present with 100% records.


Saturday’s match kicks off at 11am, there will be goal updates on Twitter and a report after full-time.
