Oasis have suffered a shock defeat after Doves won the race to record a Manchester City anthem.
Noel and Liam Gallagher, who have performed at City's former stadium Maine Road and current home Eastlands, are believed to have been sounded out about doing a version of club song Blue Moon.
But fellow Manchester rockers Doves' nipped in and their version will be played before the match with Aston Villa tonight (Wednesday).
Doves singer Jimi Goodwin said: 'I'll occasionally hear, "All right Jimi," but it's not like Noel and Liam when they go to a game. We just haven't got that kind of profile.'
And drummer Andy Williams told The Sun: 'It's going to be interesting to see how it goes down. It was flattering to be asked and I hope the City fans like it.'
