Looking back through the years at events, matches or transfers that happened on this day in City's history...

Saturday 30 August 1975

Two goals each for Joe Royle and Dennis Tueart give City a 4-0 win over Newcastle United at Maine Road.  A crowd of 31,875 see the Blues move up to ninth in Division One after two defeats in a week at Coventry and Aston Villa had seen Tony Book’s side slip into the lower reaches of the table.

Tueart scored 10 goals against the Magpies during his City career including another later that season that clinches the League Cup at Wembley.
