Michael Johnson continues his comeback in tonight's reserve game against Liverpool - his second appearance at the City of Manchester Stadium on successive nights.
Midfielder Johnson came off the bench minutes from the end of the 3-1 victory over West Ham, his first senior outing since being injured in a Carling Cup tie at Brighton a year ago.
Javier Garrido and Vladi Weiss, both unused substitutes against the Hammers, are also in the starting line-up for Glyn Hodges' unbeaten Barclays Premier Reserve League North leaders.
Prolific striker David Ball links up with Robbie Mak to present a formidable challenge to Liverpool. Ball scored twice as Everton were dismissed 4-1 in the Reserves' last home game.
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.
City line up: Taylor, Smith, Garrido, Vidal, Wabara, Johnson, Weiss, Ibrahim, Ball, Mak, Poole. Substitutes: Cunningham, Tobias Johansen, Moore, Kay, Redshaw.
