City looking to bounce back

CITY's Development Squad visit Manchester City on Sunday for their latest Barclays Under-21s Premier League game (4pm).

Dmitri Halajko's young Canaries have won once, drawn once and lost four of their six matches so far, and subsequently sit second from bottom in the Elite tier of the division.

The trip to Manchester comes thirteen days after Halajko's team were last beaten 2-0 by Leicester in their previous Barclays U21s Premier League game.

Halajko is however able to call upon striker Jamar Loza once again, who returned from his loan spell at Stevenage earlier this week, as well as Cameron King and Conor McGrandles who have recovered from illness.

"Jamar’s come back and he’s looked really sharp and trained at a great intensity so we’ve been really impressed with him," said Halajko of the Jamaican forward.

Commenting on their forthcoming opposition, the coach said: "Any team who travels away to Manchester City will not be expecting an easy game. They've got such a high level of technical skill, and they pass the ball well and work it out from the back.

"We know what we need to do. It goes without saying that we want to tighten up at the back, but when we look back at the patterns of the last few games, we should be scoring more goals than we currently do."
