Scott Sinclair missed a penalty on his first outing in a Manchester City shirt as he was given a run out for their Under-21s side against Liverpool.

Scott Sinclair: Hit the post in Under-21s run out

The winger, signed from Swansea last week in a deal reportedly worth up to £8million, hit a first-half spot-kick against the post at Kirkby before being taken off after the break.

England midfielder Gareth Barry also played most of the 2-2 draw as he continued his recovery from the abdominal injury which ruled him out of Euro 2012.

Sinclair otherwise had a promising game and his penalty blushes were spared when Jordi Hiwula struck from the rebound before Denis Suarez added a second from the spot.

The City goals came either side of Marc Pelosi efforts for the Reds.
