City extended their unbeaten run in the U18 Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 victory in front of a sizable Academy Stadium crowd.
A sloppy start from City was punished by Jayden Bogle's close range finish after four minutes. Derby winger Mitchell-Lawson made ground down the left before his cross caused a scramble which resulted in a tap in for Bogle.
It wasn't long before the Blues had put their early blip completely behind them and taken the lead. Gonzalez once again found the net, this time with a powerful drive that was too hot for Derby goalkeeper Josh Barnes to handle.
As fans have come to expect from this team, City's youngsters dominated possession throughout the second half.
