City v Man United - A closer look

The Carabao Cup quarter-final tie between City and Manchester United will be the 18th competitive meeting between the two sides at Ashton Gate.

The last fixture came in 1979 – in the old First Division – when the teams battling out a thrilling 1-1 draw.

Lou Macari fired United in front after 21 minutes in front of 28,305 inside Ashton Gate, but Alan Dicks’ side fought back.

Dave Rodgers stabbed in the equaliser before half-time and City should have gone on to win it, with both Jimmy Mann and Tom Ritchie hitting the crossbar, while Mann also saw two efforts cleared off the line.

Both sides did play out a testimonial in May 1993 for Chris Garland, with United fresh from winning the first-ever Premiership title.

United’s team included the likes of Bryan Robson, Paul Ince and Mark Hughes and they raced into a 3-0 lead, but goals from Gerry Harrison, Mike Wyatt and Leroy Rosenior earned a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The overall record in BS3 is: City win – five; United wins – five; Draws – seven.
