30th July 2004
City Lencsi(34 og) S Wright-Phillips(43), Wanchope(65)
City de Vlieger, Sommeil, Thatcher, Distin, Bischoff, S Wright-Phillips, Barton, Bosvelt, Sibierski, McManaman, Wanchope – subs Ellegaard(72), Dunne(41), B Wright-Phillips(69), Jordan(unused), Flood(69), Reyna(unused), McCarthy(unused), Croft(unused)
It was a hollow victory for City as Geert de Vlieger was carried off in the second half, a ruptured Achilles tendon means he will miss a good part of the season and leaves Kevin Keegan looking urgently for an experienced backup keeper to David James.
David Sommeil also suffered a calf muscle injury which means he may miss the start of the season.
