GALLERY: Duff trains ahead of Bolton clash

Melbourne City FC crossed paths with Manchester City first-team stars before the English Premier League side flew out to the US.

Melbourne City FC recruit Damien Duff trained on Monday ahead of Wednesday's showdown against a Bolton Wanderers XI.

Duff, who played 45 minutes against Bury in Melbourne City FC's first match on UK soil, was rested in the Club's most recent friendly against Oldham Athletic on Saturday.
