It was just a flying visit but City’s goalscorer, Jodi Jones, showed plenty of the Baker flair as he netted the winning goal to add to his opening day hat-trick against Notts County.
Jones was another man whose future attracted headlines during the transfer window and his performances over the next few months look unlikely to stop speculation about a move to a higher level come January.
