Shay Given will step up his comeback from injury when he faces Chelsea for the Elite Development side tonight - a game that will be streamed live on www.mcfc.co.uk.
The Irishman has been sidelined by a shoulder injury since February but the game at Hyde's Ewen Fields will be his first spell of game time since returning to full training in recent weeks.
The 35-year-old will lend a touch of experience to Andy Welsh’s side, who will be determined to end the season on a winning note despite being out of the running to win Northern Group A in the Barclays Premier Reserve League.
A John Guidetti hat-trick helped City to a comfortable win over Stockport in the Senior Cup last week, and the Swedish striker was on the mark in our last league fixture, coolly slotting away a penalty to ensure victory over Liverpool.
The scene is set for an exciting evening with tonight’s visitors still in the hunt to win the Southern section, and its great value with admission prices of £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
The game kicks off at 7.05pm.
