City of Manchester Stadium internal during match

Table-topping City Reserves are gearing up for another demanding game against third-place Liverpool on Tuesday night on the big stage of the City of Manchester Stadium (7pm).

Glyn Hodges' young side, who walloped Everton 4-1 in terrific style in their last home outing,  cemented their leadership of the Premier Reserve League North with a rousing 4-3 win at Wigan.

That made it three out of three and Hodges, who has his team playing some swashbuckling stuff, reckons this season's switch to the seniors' super surface is paying dividends for his lads.

He said: "It gives the boys a real lift to play in the Stadium and inspires their football. I'm sure the supporters who watched the game against Everton went home thoroughly delighted."

Champions League winner Sylvinho and England Under-21 defender Nedum Onuoha both featured in the victory over a strong Wigan side at Robin Park as well as prolific young prospect David Ball.

Entrance W will be open from 6.15pm. Seasoncard holders will be admitted free, as will Live4City members accompanied by an adult. Adults pay £3, concessions £1. The North car park will be free.

Nedum Onuoha saw action for the first time since pre-season, and at left-back Sylvinho made his first appearance since his arrival in late August. His last competitive match had been in Barcelona’s Champions League final victory over United in Rome – there cannot be too many who have played at the Olympic Stadium and Robin Park in consecutive games!
