Town boss Rob Edwards paid tribute to his midfielder following his appearance at the Etihad.

He said: “Delighted for him, he is a huge figure for the club. To play 400 games for any team is special.

“It doesn’t happen very often, especially in this day and age, so it’s nice for him. He’ll be disappointed with the result – like we all are – but to achieve that milestone against the treble winners is nice.”

Huge congratulations to you Pelly - thank you for everything so far!
