Double boost for City in Senior Cup triumph

Last Updated: Thu, 17 Oct 2013 12:39

Martin Demichelis put himself in contention for Man City's Premier League clash at West Ham with a 45-minute run-out for the reserves.

The Argentina centre back came through the half unscathed as City's elite development squad reached the Manchester Senior Cup final via a penalty shout out following a 2-2 draw with Rochdale at Hyde.

Jordy Hiwula bagged a brace, but two goals in five minutes from the visitors meant that the match went straight to penalties.

Also appearing for Patrick Vieira's side for the first time this season were fellow first-teamers Jack Rodwell and Dedryck Boyata, who both would have been keen to impress with West Ham at Upton Park just three days away.

Rodwell completed the full 90 minutes and could earn himself a spot in Manuel Pellegrini's match-day squad at the weekend.
