When it comes to football, Easter means a double-fixture Bank Holiday weekend. But with no action taking place due to the COVID-19 outbreak we take a look back at some memorable City results from recent seasons.
This Easter Sunday we rewind the clocks to the 2011/12 season with City battling to avoid relegation.
It was a feat they would achieve thanks to an eight-game unbeaten run at the end, finishing the season 20th in the Championship and nine points from safety.

It was a match of few chances but City moved out of the relegation zone with the three points away to Forest, courtesy of a 55th minute penalty.
New Zealand international Chris Wood was the man to step up with the spot-kick, after Jon Stead was fouled by keeper Lee Camp.

It was a clash of two sides battling it out in the lower depths of the Championship, with City victorious to go four points clear of third-from-bottom Coventry.
The Sky Blues took the lead though when Jon Stead flicked the ball into his own net from Sammy Clinigan's free kick. However, the striker made amends when he bundled in an equaliser, before Yannick Bolasie turned and fired home to put City in front.
Brett Pitman's sending off could have made it a difficult finish for the hosts but Chris Wood added a late third to round off a great afternoon.
Keep your eyes on the website this Easter Monday, for our final throwback to another six points over Easter from the 2005/06 campaign...
