Match Summary A powerful second half calms nerves after lowly City had pinched the lead with only their 32nd goal in 37 matches. Reid’s header and a typical piledriver turn the game as he atones for an earlier missed sitter. Phillips and Clarke both rattle the bar, before Clarke’s stinging shot settles it.
