For the third consecutive day a United side drew 2-2, Magnus Eikrem’s late late strike earning United’s reserves a deserved share of the points against a strong Blackburn XI at Leigh Sports Village.

A largely disappointing game sprung to life ten minutes before the break as Robbie Brady converted a penalty won by Ravel Morrison, with Rovers keeper Frankie Fielding keeping his side in the game with a series of fine saves thereafter. The hosts weathered that storm and turned things around in the second half, a goal apiece from strike pairing Jason Roberts and David Hoilett – the latter from the spot – giving Blackburn a lead they looked like holding onto until Reds skipper Eikrem popped up in the fourth minute of stoppage time with a brilliant equaliser, just reward for a youthful United side that more than matched their more experienced opposition.

Reserves: Bury 1 United 5 – Shakers shaken as Reds fire five

Tunnicliffe 81

 
United’s Reserves cruised into the quarter-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup with a convincing 5-1 victory over Bury at Gigg Lane.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side responded to their heavy defeat at the hands of Aston Villa last week in ideal fashion, dishing out a thrashing of their own to set up a last eight clash with Oldham Athletic. Robbie Brady set the Reds on their way with a quickfire double midway through the first half, and while a mistake from Reece Brown allowed the Shakers to pull a goal back before half-time, United moved up a gear after the break and ran away with the tie, adding further goals through Marnick Vermijl, John Cofie and Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Vermijl 64, 75

 
Marnick Vermijl marked his Reds debut with a well-taken brace as United comfortably overcame a shadow Shamrock Rovers side 3-0 in the first game of the Platinum One Challenge.

Rovers keeper Pat Jennings performed a passable impression of his illustrious goalkeeping namesake in the first-half, denying United on a number of occasions, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side – bolstered by a number of players with senior experience – weren’t to be denied after the break as a penalty from Tom Cleverley and Vermijl’s double secured a deservedly comprehensive win.
