Tavistock this evening, but precious little information around at the moment.

Or best bet is a live feed from WO

7 - 2 win for City. Good to see such a strong side have a run out.

Zohore & Saadi started up front and could be the shape of things to come, with a brace apiece.

With seven new faces, Saadi & Kennedy both back in the frame, plus Manga on a new contract, that really is a nice job of deepening the strength of the squad.

Obviously easy games lined up at this stage, but interesting to see NW experimenting with different formations during the game and even playing with 10 men for the last 15 minutes against Tavistock.

Wonder what sort of line up we will see at Bodmin? I seem to remember that this was pencilled in as an u-23 game, but even so, the fringe players might get more time.

I know it's easier opposition at the moment but it was nice to see Saadi making his point... hopefully Neil gives him a chance in the championship,

Also when Healy Comes back to full fitness it'll be like a new signing (does anyone actually know when he's back? I had October in my head for some reason)

The highlights of the Taffs Well game are on iFollow now and also the full 90 minutes. There isn't any commentary, which, in some ways, is a bonus. I'm looking forward to having a look at Saadi once the Tavistock game is put up for viewing.

If you click on iFollow on the City website or in the app there should be an option to sign in or register/subscribe. £45 for a year.

The U23's are playing St. Austell on Thursday and Bideford on Saturday with the Plymouth first team game on Friday.

Do you think it's worth the moolah for what you get?
