U18s: City 2 United 2 – Reds rue missed opportunity as City snatch a point

Posted by nickogs20 on September 26, 2010


September 25th 2010, 11am
Platt Lane, Manchester

Manchester Man Utd
Manchester City U18s 2-2 Manchester United U18s
Bunn 2, 80 Pogba 23
Cofie 50

 
Seemingly following the first team’s lead this season, for a third consecutive week United’s U18s let a winning position slip as a late equaliser secured City a 2-2 draw at Platt Lane.

The Blues had taken an early lead through prolific striker Harry Bunn, but United turned the game on its head with goals from Paul Pogba and John Cofie and thoroughly dominated the game for long spells either side of half-time. The Reds’ failure to add a decisive third goal while in the ascendancy always looked like it could be costly though, and so it proved as Bunn grabbed his and City’s second ten minutes from time to earn the hosts a somewhat fortuitous point.

U18s: City 2 United 3 – Reds roar back to inflict more derby despair

Posted by nickogs20 on April 28, 2010

Platt Lane Training Complex, Manchester

Manchester City Man Utd
Manchester City U18s 2-3 Manchester United U18s
Benali 23 Pogba 60
Bunn 27 King 75, 90

 
As if three injury time winners at first-team level this season weren’t enough, United’s U18s followed in the footsteps of their senior counterparts by breaking Manchester City hearts with yet another last gasp strike to take all three points at Platt Lane.

Things had looked bleak for the Reds in this rearranged fixture after some atrocious first-half defending handed the hosts a 2-0 lead at the break, but Paul McGuinness’ side have already shown this season that all is not lost in such a situation and duly mounted a stirring comeback. Paul Pogba’s majestic goal on the hour mark gave United hope and belief and a brace from Joshua King, the latter coming just after the game had moved into injury time, gave the young Reds a sensational victory. As if completing a rare double over City at this level wasn’t reward enough, the three points were also enough to move the Reds within touching distance of the Academy League Group C title.

Reserves: United 0 City 2 – Title-winners’ treble dreams are dashed

Posted by nickogs20 on April 22, 2010


April 22nd 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Man City
Manchester United Reserves 0-2 Manchester City Reserves
Mak 77
Tutte 79

 
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.

Reserves: United 2 City 2 – More derby drama as City strike late to claim a point

Posted by nickogs20 on March 12, 2010


March 11th 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Man City
Manchester United Reserves 2-2 Manchester City Reserves
R Brown 19 Nimely 33
W Keane 27 Tutte 90 (pen)

 
It wouldn’t be a Manchester Derby this season without some late drama, but this time it was the blue side of the city who struck in the closing stages to change the result. Thankfully they chose a reserve game to make their late intervention, and United were still left with a useful point after a typically competitive clash ended 2-2 at Moss Lane.

Leading 2-0 after half an hour via Reece Brown’s free header and an impudent backheeled finish from the increasingly prolific Will Keane, the Reds were almost immediately pegged back by a goal from Alex Nimely and thereafter struggled to re-establish their early superiority. City exerted steady pressure on the United goal throughout the second half and when Brown conceded a penalty in the final minute, Andrew Tutte was able to step up and secure City a deserved share of the points from 12 yards.
