TEAM NEWS: CITY v MAN CITY U21s

24 September 2019

George Sykes-Kenworthy will make his City debut in this evening's Leasing.com Trophy clash with Manchester City Under-21s. 

The goalkeeper - having recently completed a loan spell at neighbours Guiseley - leads a host of changes made by Gary Bowyer ahead of the encounter. 

Ben Richards-Everton is the only member of Bowyer's side to keep his place in the starting 11, following Saturday's victory over Carlisle United.

The towering centre-half is serving a three-match suspension, following his dismissal at the weekend, though is eligible in this competition. 

Aramide Oteh makes his first start in claret and amber, starting in attack alongside Zeli Ismail and Shay McCartan. 

And there are places on the bench for under-18s Reece Staunton, Jorge Sikora, Connor Morris and Finn Cousin-Dawson. 

Sikora, Morris and Cousin-Dawson will join Sykes-Kenworthy in making their City debuts, should they feature.
