City's under-18s secured the ideal start to the 2014/15 campaign with an impressive 4-1 win away to Blackburn Rovers.

Goals from Denzeil Boadu, Bersant Celina, Isaac Buckley and substitute Zacharias Faour earned a thumping victory for the boys in blue, ensuring their defence of the Premier League North Division title began on the perfect note.

On the back of a mixed pre-season, which began with three triumphs on the bounce before a less convincing run of one win in four, Jason Wilcox was keen for his side to rediscover last season's scintillating form.

He opted to field a defensive line-up of Sam Tattum, Cameron Humphreys, Nathaniel Oseni and Tosin Adarabioyo in front of shot-stopper Charlie Albinson - but in all honesty, the back line had very little to do, aside from a 15-minute spell at the start of the second half.
