City u18s take on Blackburn Rovers in their third league home game on the spin, hoping to claim consecutive wins in the Barclays u18 Premier League.
Adam Sadler’s men clinched a morale-boosting 4-1 win over Arsenal last time out, in a game which saw both managers keen to give some younger players a chance to impress.
Joe Nuttall continued his red-hot goalscoring form with a hat-trick to down the Gunners and Norwegian winger Bersant Celina also chipped in with a goal in the convincing win.
Blackburn, who are managed by Terry McPhillips, have seven points from their first four games of Phase 2 of National Group 2.
Kick-off at Platt Lane is at 11am on Saturday morning and it is free entry for supporters wishing to come down and support.
