Danny Sturridge and Antoine Sibierski scored the first half goals that gave City's Pontin's reserve side the perfect start to the season with a 2-0 victory over Wrexham at the Regional Athletics Arena.

The Blues fielded a strong side giving Nicky Weaver, Nedum Onuoha and Antoine Sibierski all a last chance to gain some vital match fitness ahead of Sunday's Premiership opener away at Chelsea.


Frank Bunn, who took the team tonight instead of the usual Pontin's reserve boss, Gregor Rioch, said afterwards: ""It was quite a difficult game. They made it hard for us, got behind the ball well, and it took us a while to break them down.


"But the class told in the end and the lads took their goals well."


The goals came in the 32nd minute from Sturridge and Sibierski sealed the game just four minutes before the break. Nedum Onuoha and Sibierski both came through the game with no problems.
