City Reserves marked their return to action after a three-month break with a comfortable win last night, with Tuesday night's goal hero Cody McDonald once again on the scoresheet.

McDonald, who came off the bench at Walsall to net City's winner, started the game at the Lamec Stadium and, as early as the third minute, he was causing the Boro defence problems with a shot that cannoned off an upright.

It was the home side, however, who almost took the lead on 10 minutes with a shot that Paul McVeigh cleared off the line, with City keeper Declan Rudd well beaten.

Five minutes later McDonald opened the scoring with a shot beyond keeper Ashley Bayes after some good build-up play.

McDonald turned provider shortly after when he set up strike partner Danny Kelly but his shot was saved.
