LIVERPOOL Reserves will be aiming for their first home win of the season when they entertain Manchester City at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium on Monday, kick-off 7pm.

Champions Liverpool go into the Barclays Premier Reserve League (North) clash on the back of three successive defeats, the most recent being the home 3-2 ‘mini derby’ loss to Everton on October 14.

Anfield boss Rafael Benitez watched on as the Reds let a two-goal lead slip in the five-goal thriller with their fierce rivals and will feel they should have claimed all three points following second-half strikes from Jordy Brouwer and Gerardo Bruna.

However, a 20-minute salvo from an experienced Everton side including first-team stars James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe was enough to consign the Reds to only their second ever defeat at The Halliwell Jones.

It will be City’s first visit to Warrington Wolves’ den, and, with the Blues having a strong support base in the town, another huge turnout is expected. The crowd of 2,679 for the ‘mini derby’ is the league’s highest of the season so far.

Third-placed City will be seeking to return to winning ways themselves after goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was beaten three times without reply last time out against Manchester United.

Only the all-seating North Stand will be open for Monday’s game, with turnstiles opening at 6pm.

Tickets can be purchased in advance of the game at Wolves’ shop at the stadium or by contacting 0871 6221879.

A family ticket is £14 (two adults, two children) with single tickets priced at £6 for adults and £3 for concessions and juniors.
