United may have got one over on their local rivals in dramatic fashion at Eastlands last weekend but the noisy neighbours got a small measure of revenge at reserve level as City deservedly beat Ole Solskjaer’s second string 2-0 at Moss Lane, ending the Reds’ hopes of a treble and prying the Manchester Senior Cup from their grasp after two successive triumphs.

Fresh from winning the reserve league without even playing on Tuesday, there was an element of ‘after the lord mayor’s show’ about United as they put in perhaps their worst performance of the season, Ben Foster comfortably the Reds’ best player as he was called upon to keep the cup holders in the game on numerous occasions. His stubborn resistance was ended by a cool finish from Robbie Mak thirteen minutes from time though and the Blues immediately nipped any thoughts of a United comeback in the bud when Andrew Tutte fired home from the edge of the box two minutes later to send City through to a cup final clash with Bolton Wanderers.
