United’s 100% record in this season’s Manchester Senior Cup continued as Nick Ajose’s quickfire second-half hattrick fired the Reds to a comfortable win over Bolton Wanderers at Moss Lane.

After a dour first forty-five minutes Ole Solskjaer’s side cut loose after the break, inspired by a magical display of playmaking from Magnus Eikrem, who was an architect in all four goals. United blew the visitors away in a 16-minute spell as Ajose continued his impressive season so far with a fine display of finishing and a first reserve treble, the equally prolific John Cofie completing the rout in injury time as he grabbed what has this season become his almost obligatory goal.

Reserves: United 2 Stockport 0 – Red-hot Cofie kills off County

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side continued their flawless start to the new campaign, comfortably beating Stockport County at Moss Lane to make it three wins from three in the Manchester Senior Cup.

United dominated proceedings from the outset, and Will Keane opened the scoring midway through the first half from the penalty spot. Despite the Reds creating numerous chances, a combination of some wayward finishing, intervention from the woodwork and heroics from Hatters’ keeper Owain Fon Williams kept the visitors in the game deep into the second half, the three points only really being secured when sub John Cofie struck his first goal for the reserves with quarter of an hour remaining,

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

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: Bolton 2 United 2 (Bolton win 3-2 on pens) – Reds endure more penalty pain in the MSC

County Ground, Leyland

Bolton Man Utd
Bolton Wanderers Reserves 2-2 Manchester United Reserves
Mooy 12 Pogba 11
Obadeyi 50 Ajose 54

 
BOLTON WANDERERS WIN 3-2 ON PENALTIES

Sheridan MISSED Hewson SCORED
Blakeman MISSED Norwood SCORED
Harsanyi SCORED Tunnicliffe MISSED
Eckersley SCORED Pogba MISSED
Mooy SCORED Stewart MISSED

 
 
Deja vu was the order of the day at the County Ground in Leyland as, for the second season running, United’s reserves lost a Manchester Senior Cup tie to Bolton Wanderers after a dramatic penalty shootout.

A youthful United second string took an early lead through debutant Paul Pogba, only for Aaron Mooy to immediately level for the hosts. In a hectic second half that sequence was reversed, with Temitope Obadeyi putting Bolton 2-1 up for all of four minutes before Nicky Ajose’s sweetly-struck response. In truth the Reds were somewhat fortunate to take the game to penalties after Wanderers dominated the second 45 minutes, but once the shootout was underway, and the home side had missed their first two penalties, it looked for all the world that Ole Solskjaer’s side would prevail. Bolton keeper Robert Lainton had other ideas however, saving superbly from Ryan Tunnicliffe, Pogba and Cameron Stewart to engineer a remarkable turnaround and inflict more shootout misery on United’s reserves, who have now lost four of them in the last 13 months.

Fixture frustration for U18s and Reserves

Posted by nickogs20 on November 13, 2009

Both Paul McGuinness’ U18 side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second string have had their upcoming games postponed.

Tomorrow’s Premier Academy League game with Stoke City has been called off after inclement weather this past week caused the pitch at the Potters’ Clayton Wood base to become waterlogged. Both teams have a free weekend at the end of this month but the short notice and probable Youth Cup considerations will likely mean the fixture will instead be re-arranged for some time in the spring. As usual, when we find out the new date, we’ll let you know.

Meanwhile the Reserves’ Manchester Senior Cup clash with Stockport County, originally scheduled for Monday night at Ashton United’s Hurst Cross ground, has been re-arranged for Thursday December 17th at County’s request. With Hull away next up on the fixture list on November 24th, Solskjaer’s side will have endured a frustrating three weeks without a game by that time.

United 5 Bury 0: Shakers shaken as Reds fire five

Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Bury
Manchester United Reserves 5-0 Bury Reserves
Hewson 5
Macheda 31 (pen), 50
Stewart 36
Moffatt 70

 
United made an emphatic start to their bid to win the Manchester Senior Cup for a third consecutive year this evening, Bury the unfortunate side on the receiving end of a five-star showing from Ole Solskjaer’s Reserves at Moss Lane.

Sam Hewson picked up where he left off against Bolton on Monday night and handed the Reds a fifth-minute lead. Bury’s backline could have been forgiven at that point for thinking they were in for a long night, and so it proved as Kiko Macheda (twice), Cameron Stewart and Scott Moffatt all found the net and established a scoreline that barely reflected United’s dominance over the ninety minutes.
