PETER GARDNER WRITING IN THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS 28TH JANUARY 1974
Ron Saunders faces his biggest test since becoming Manchester City manager three months ago, and he hast just 48 hours in which to do it.
He has to lift a side whose morale was shattered in the humiliating FA Cup defeat by a no more than average Second Division side at Nottingham yesterday.
… It was a nightmare for City as they lost two goals in one five minute spell and were 3-0 down at half-time.
But the horrors were all of their own making.
Colin Barrett had a disastrous match and his full back partner Willie Donachie made the mistake which led to yet another goal, his third such error in successive matches.
In fact, for once City were let down by all their youngsters with the exception of Frank Carrodus, a tireless worker whose reward came with a 72nd minute goal.
Within seconds of this goal Colin Bell, who can also be exonerated from blame, shot over when a pass to the unmarked Francis Lee might have paid a better dividend...
