City EDS booked their place in the fourth round of the inaugural Barclays u21 Premier League Cup with an extra-time triumph over Stoke City.
The sides couldn’t be separated in normal time, thanks to an inspired performance from Stoke goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann, but goals from Albert Rusnak and Angelino in either half of extra-time gave the Blues the victory their performance deserved.
Launched this season, the under-21 Premier League Cup offers City a further opportunity for silverware in a campaign which sees them fighting on five fronts.
Without a match since the home defeat to CSKA Moscow two and a half weeks ago, City arrived at Nantwich Town FC on a Baltic November night for this meeting with a Stoke City team the Blues did the double over at this level last season.Read full match report
