LEADING scorer Clayton Donaldson will return to action in tonight's reserves match against Sheffield United at KitKat Crescent.

Donaldson has secured a summer move to Hibernian since his last appearance in City colours when he was sent off for elbowing during the 2-1 defeat at Kidderminster on January 20.

But, having served a three-game ban, he will be given a run-out in this evening's 7pm fixture ahead of Saturday's first-team trip to Altrincham.

Ex-Newcastle Benfield striker Richard Brodie is expected to line up alongside Donaldson after completing his transfer from the Northern League side last week.

City Reserves squad: Reid, Wright, Craddock, Parslow, McWilliams, Rhodes, Greenwood, McMahon, Maidens, Donaldson, Brodie, Phillips, Shepherd, Radcliffe, Thornton, Wrigley.
