Darragh Leahy comes back in to the side after a successful spell on international duty...
Nicky Eaden takes charge of City's U23s against Watford at the Alan Higgs Centre this afternoon, in a 1pm kick-off.
Corey Addai retains his place in goal, while the back four is comprised of Jacob Whitmore, Dion Kelly-Evans, Jack Finch and fresh from representing the Republic of Ireland U19 national team, Darragh Leahy.
Andy Rose makes his much anticipated return from injury and will partner Callum Maycock in midfield.
Skipper Devon Kelly-Evans will start alongside George Thomas and Kyle Spence - who scored a brace in City's 4-3 win over Crewe just a week ago. Jack McBean gets a starting berth up top.
