CITY came from behind to register a comfortable 4-1 win over TV Echterdingen in Stuttgart today.

Gordon Greer played centre half for the first half as he looks to convince the Bantams he is worth pursuing for a deal.

But Charlie Wyke sits it out with a sore hamstring.

Keeper Rouven Sattelmaier captains the side for the first half.

Home stopper Hiroyuki Kawama made a fine save to deny Dominic Poleon.

But it was the hosts who took a shock lead on 22 minutes, Meksud Colic with a spectacular finish from 40 yards.

Greer saw a long-range effort tipped over before City levelled with a low 25-yards from Timothee Dieng.

City made ten changes at the break, with only Danny Devine staying on.

And Paul Taylor, making his first appearance, missed an open goal from barely six yards out.

City took the lead with 12 minutes left as Shay McCartan danced round the keeper after being picked out by Jake Reeves.

Omari Patrick, who had come back on for Devine, showed his persistence with a third.

And Dan Pybus netted number four after his first shot was blocked on the line.

CITY (first half): Sattelmaier, Barr, Greer, Knight-Percival, Chicksen, Patrick, Devine, Dieng, Law, Jones, Poleon.

Second half: Doyle, Hanson, Kilgallon, Vincelot, McMahon, Gilliead, Reeves, Devine (Patrick 69), Taylor, Pybus, McCartan.
