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: Wigan 1 United 0 – Youthful reserves lose to the Latics

Wigan Athletic Reserves 1-0 Manchester United Reserves

After a previously unbeaten 2010, United’s Reserves followed last week’s cup exit at the hands of Manchester City with a second successive defeat, losing 1-0 to Wigan after being forced to play the second half with just ten men.

While the defeat to City came after a disappointingly lacklustre performance, a slightly makeshift United XI acquitted themselves much more respectably at Robin Park and were unfortunate to end up on the losing side after having the better of the game even after Ritchie de Laet’s red card just before half-time. The Belgian defender received his marching orders after an off the ball clash with Latics forward Tomasz Kupisz, who rubbed salt in the wound when scoring what proved to be the winner just after the hour mark, and despite hitting the woodwork twice, the recently crowned champions couldn’t quite find the goal to preserve their long unbeaten league run.
