Sampson 66

 
United’s academy side slumped to a disappointing away defeat as Bolton’s youngsters proved too strong on a wintry morning at Lostock Hall Farm.

The Reds had their chances and struck the crossbar twice, but a physically imposing Wanderers side generally held the upper hand throughout and Jack Sampson’s deflected effort in the second half was enough to give them a deserved win and complete a rare league double over Paul McGuinness’ team.

Reserves: United 3 Wigan 1 – Bébé bags brilliant brace

Posted by nickogs20 on November 18, 2010


November 18th 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Wigan
Manchester United Reserves 3-1 Wigan Athletic Reserves
Bébé 4, 57 Sunday 65
W Keane 45 (pen)

 
Two terrific goals from Portuguese winger Bébé helped United’s second string extend their unbeaten run to six games, the Reds running out comfortable 3-1 winners over Wigan Athletic at Moss Lane.

The summer signing from Vitória Guimarães struck early on with a fierce effort into the top corner before producing an even better goal just before the hour mark, his stunning angled volley arrowing and dipping past a helpless Lee Nicholls in the Latics goal. In between Will Keane had stroked home a penalty on the brink of half-time, all of which rendered Ivan Sunday’s header with twenty-five minutes remaining no more than a consolation.

United’s second string returned from a month without a game to record their first league win of the season, coming back from a goal down to beat Bolton in terrible conditions at the County Ground.

An experienced Trotters XI featuring a number of first team squad members took the lead through Adam Blakeman just after the half-hour mark, but Will Keane provided an almost instant response for the Reds before second-half strikes from Cameron Stewart and Tom Thorpe secured all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
