Under-23s set for cup semi-final showdown

City Under-23s are one game away from cementing their place in the Central League Cup final.

Luke Williams' development squad take on MK Dons at Stadium mk today (April 3rd, 2pm kick-off) in the southern semi-final of the competition.

The fixture is played over one leg only, with extra time to follow if the score remains a draw after 90 minutes. A penalty shootout will follow should the score remain even at the end of extra time.

The winner of today's tie will play Southend United's reserves in the final, after they beat Bristol Rovers 5-4 on penalties (2-2 after extra time).

Williams' side have lost their previous two matches, against Hull City and Swansea respectively, and face a congested month in terms of fixtures.
