Bojinov returns with a goal

Valeri Bojinov returned to action after his long injury lay-off in the reserves' 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Thursday night.

The Reds went 2-0 up thanks to a first-half brace from Jordy Brouwer, but Bojinov, a 69th minute substitute, went very close just seconds after coming on and then played a big part in City's goal 12 minutes from the end.


Great to see Bojinov finally return to action in what was a very young looking reserve side, and although it is too late for this season he should be at full tilt come pre-season time.

Whilst Sven has stuck faithfully to the 4-5-1 this campaing - at times painfully so, you do wonder if this was enforced on him largely because of Bojinov's injury so early in the season which scuppered his chances of fielding the right balance in a 4-4-2, which I think Bojinov would have been an integral feature of.

Should be interesting to see how it lines up next season.
