It will be the second time in nine days that City EDS have faced the Reds and the home side will be looking to avenge their 1-0 defeat at Leigh Sports Village on Thursday 11 February.
A win could see Davies’ young charges move into third place as they look to close the gap on their local rivals at the top of the league.
Their first home game since January, the Blues will be looking for a repeat of their last performance in front of their own fans, when an Aleix Garcia’s stunning strike inspired a 3-1 victory over Reading.
Midfielder George Glendon is delighted with the decision to move the game to Etihad Stadium.
He said: “We can’t wait to get out onto the pitch at the Etihad and to hear the City fans cheering us on. It’s already a huge match and getting to play it at the Etihad makes it even more special.”
Manager Davies shared his view, adding: “This is a great opportunity for my team to experience what it’s like to play at the Etihad Stadium.”
“All of the boys aspire to making the first team and this will be a chance for them to feel what that could be like.”
