Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Monday 17 August 1992
Sky TV’s first live Monday night football game sees City take on QPR at Maine Road.
Fireworks and cheerleaders greet the players as they run out for a match that also sees the banning of the back pass to the goalkeeper.
Tony Coton appears to forget the rule and picks up a back pass early on in the game, though the referee allows play to continue. The game ends 1-1.
