VMC Man of The Match No 47 versus Reading
He's back. Nigel De Jong's re-emergence as the heartbeat of the City team contributed to his side's 21st clean sheet of the season. He's the VMC Forum MoTM against Reading...
How City have missed De Jong's no nonsense yet carefully constructed work ethic during his recent 4 week absence through an ankle injury. With him back and firing, The Blues can focus upon the club's imminent and surely most important phase of games in the modern era with relish.
Micah Richards's stunning resurgence continues apace and his superb header that won the difficult tie and saw City through to face Crawley Town's conquerors didn't go unappreciated!
