A moment of history that City fans will want to forget was created tonight as a mere 3,007 fans turned up at Maine Road to witness the debacle that is the Auto Windscreen Trophy and even worse a much changed City side lost.
It was a record low crowd at Maine Road, 1,018 less than the previous record.
