Wheelan To Be Fit For Villa Game

Noel Whelan is expected to be fit for the clash against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The City striker had to be replaced in the second half of the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United and at first it appeared he might have done serious damage to his shoulder.

But it turns out he has just badly bruised a collarbone and there is no structural damage. He started a course of treatment yesterday but is expected to join in training later in the week.

The Highfield Road pitch, which has been cutting up badly in recent weeks, will get another battering this week after the youth team drew their FA Youth Cup game at Sheffield United.

The youngsters drew 1-1 in the fifth round at Bramall Lane yesterday and will face the Blades at Highfield Road on Friday (ko 7.00pm).

Central defender Mark Burrows put the side ahead just after half time when he turned in a glancing header from a Daniel Hall free kick. The home side hit back with 20 minutes to go, turning in the ball after a goal-mouth scramble.

City needed a replay against Brighton in the third round before going on to beat them and then see off Notts County.

The Reserves are in action again this week. Trevor Peake’s men sit at the top of the Pontins League Division One and are favourites to see of Burnley on Tuesday night.

Stefano Gioacchini is expected to lead the attack and will be aiming to maintain the run which has seen him score three goals in three games for the club.

City had 75 tickets left on sale for the Premiership game at Aston Villa, when the ticket office opened today but they sold within the first hour of business.

Winger Paul Hall made his debut for First Division Bury as they went down 2-0 at home to Norwich City.
