Manchester City’s penultimate home game of the season has been changed from 5th to 6th
City have fond and not so fond memories of playing Huddersfield. In November 1987, a young blues team demolished the Terriers 10-1 at Maine Road, with Tony Adcock, Paul Stewart and David White all grabbing hat-tricks, with Neil McNab scoring the opening goal. Huddersfield’s only goal came for the penalty spot, with former City man Andy may scoring against his old side.
Then exactly ten years to the day later, the two teams were paired together again, only this time, Huddersfield ran out 1-0 winners.
In addition to the Huddersfield change, the blues home match against Brighton will be played on Wednesday 9th
The last time City played Brighton at home was at Maine Road in 1988. An opening goal from Ian Brightwell was cancelled out just after half time, but a stunning Paul Moulden strike gave the blues a 2-1 victory. The win was City’s first that season and set the blues on the path to promotion.
