Jordan Dyer has spoken ahead of City's opening Papa John's Trophy match against Chelsea Under-21s.
It is a competition Dyer knows well and he has stressed the importance that the Papa John's Trophy has on the progression of young players.
"It is a valuable competition for us and it gives us an opportunity to prove ourselves to the manager, but it's also the chance to get to a cup final.
"It is a competition we want to win, but it's all about the experience that comes with it. It's such a good building block to bridging the gap between academy and first team football."
