Ajose 75
James 84

United may have suffered semi-final heartbreak at Wembley yesterday, but no such fate or drama awaited the reserves today as a stirring second-half display saw them comfortably overcome Preston by four goals to nil on a beautifully sunny afternoon at Deepdale. After dominating a tepid first-half without overly threatening the Preston goal, the Reds found their shooting boots in the second half and simply overpowered a Lilywhites side who worked hard but were ultimately out of their depth.

Goals from Danny Drinkwater, Lee Martin, sub Nicky Ajose and an absolute screamer from Matt James sent Ole Solskjaer’s side through to a second consecutive LSC Final (against either Blackburn or Bolton) in some style, and there was further good news for Reds fans in the form of Wes Brown’s return to action after a long injury lay-off, the England defender completing nearly an hour at right-back.
