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,

United’s reserves made it two wins from two in this year’s Manchester Senior Cup with a hard-fought win over Oldham Athletic.

While the performance left something to be desired, there was lots to be pleased about in the form of fine goals from Nicky Ajose and Federico Macheda, yet another comeback victory and important stepping stones on the road back to full fitness for Anderson, Wes Brown and, most notably, Rio Ferdinand, who completed 45 minutes on his comeback from the knee injury that ruled him out of the World Cup.

Reserves: St Johnstone 2 United 3: Reds leave it late as Ajose nicks another win

United’s Reserves continued their encouraging pre-season campaign as Nicky Ajose’s second late winner in the space of four days secured a 3-2 win over St Johnstone in a testimonial for Saints’ keeper Alan Main.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Warren Joyce’s side threatened to run riot in the first half, racing into a 2-0 lead with goals from Oliver Norwood and Joshua King, but the hosts responded after the break with a quick double-salvo from Marcus Haber and Nicholas Main. Having seen his son level the scores, Main Senior was introduced from the bench for his final appearance at McDiarmid Park and received a rousing send-off from all in attendance, although not before the increasingly prolific Ajose rained on his parade just a little with his 88th minute decider.

Reserves: Oxford 1 United 2: Reds ride their luck as Ajose nicks the winner

Ajose 90

 
United’s Reserves got their pre-season campaign back on track with a late late victory over Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium.

After spurning an early chance to take the lead when Magnus Eikrem saw his penalty saved, the Reds seemed to have snatched a half-time advantage when the Norwegian made amends by curling home a free-kick a minute before the break, only for the hosts to respond immediately through James Constable. Oxford had the better of an extremely competitive second half and looked the more likely winners but, with time almost up, Nicky Ajose popped up at the far post to volley home and clinch a dramatic win in textbook United fashion.

Reserves: Dunfermline 1 United 5 – Reds hit five in Fife

United’s Reserves made it nine goals scored in their first two pre-season games as they put five past an outclassed Dunfermline at East End Park.

Coming off the back of a four-goal haul against Curzon Ashton on Monday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side picked up where they left off and blew the Scottish First Division outfit away in the first half. Joshua King grabbed two goals inside the first twenty minutes, those two strikes sandwiching another from Nicky Ajose, and Rodrigo Possebon’s long range effort made it four before the break. While Andy Kirk’s free-kick pulled a goal back for the home side in a quieter second half, Will Keane put some deserved gloss on the scoreline and restored the four-goal cushion with a typical finish five minutes from time.

Reserves: Curzon Ashton 0 United 4 – Reds cruise through pre-season opener

United’s Reserves got their pre-season programme off to flying start with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Curzon Ashton at the Tameside Stadium.

The last encounter between these two sides ended in a resounding 8-0 victory for the Reds, and with goals from Magnus Eikrem, Ravel Morrison and Nicky Ajose giving Ole Solskjaer’s side a 3-0 lead at the break, a similar scoreline looked on the cards. United – showing off the club’s new home kit for the first time – laid siege to the Curzon goal in the second half and the brilliant Robbie Brady added a fine fourth, but the woodwork, several near misses and some profligate finishing meant that the non-leaguers kept the scoreline respectable.

After seeing their reserve counterparts crowned champions on Tuesday night, Paul McGuinness’ Under-18 side took a big step towards a title of their own as they moved six points clear at the top of Barclays Premier Academy League Group C with a comfortable 3-0 win at Stoke City.

A second-minute strike from in-form skipper Nicky Ajose gave the Reds a lead they would never look like relinquishing, and further goals from Paul Pogba and John Cofie provided a scoreline that accurately reflected United’s superiority and delivered a second convincing away win in the space of four days.
