Match Summary Monty’s pre-match telegram from Switzerland urges the team to concentrate on the league. With the help of the ‘Chimes’ they do just that after Smith nods City in front. After Clarke’s overhead kick, it’s one-way traffic. Harris poaches the lead, then Clarke scores with a first-time shot.
