Gallery: Blues battle the elements ahead of U18 Premier League return!

City fought off the wind and rain as we put our final preparations in place for Saturday's Under-18s Premier League trip to Stoke City.

Ben Wilkinson's side will be looking to get back to winning ways after last weekend's derby defeat to Manchester United.

Victory in Saturday's 11:30 GMT kick-off and results in our favour elsewhere could see us move level with current league leaders Sunderland before we travel to Wearside next weekend.

Both matches will be shown live on CITY+ and our official Recast channel.

Before that however, it was time for our players to get stuck in to a physical session at the CFA despite the wintery conditions in Manchester.
