City's Elite Development Squad will take on their Manchester United counterparts in the Barclays Reserve League North derby this evening.
The Blues go into the game as leaders of the division, with two games in hand over nearest rivals Newcastle and three clear of the Reds.
United won the first 'mini' derby at Hyde earlier on this season and City know if they win tonight, with just five games remaining, they will have an excellent chance of winning the league.
The match will be played at Moss Lane, home of Altrincham FC with a 7pm kick-off.
