United 1 Newcastle 1: Reserves frustrated as wonder-strike earns the Toon a point

Manchester United Reserves 1-1 Newcastle United Reserves
C. Evans 8 Danquah 19
Fábio missed pen 78

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side secured a top three finish in the Barclays Premier Reserve League North – with one game to go – at Moss Lane this evening, but saw a Newcastle wondergoal and a Fábio da Silva penalty miss frustrate their bid to clinch second place in the table. Corry Evans’ first goal of the season put the Reds into a deserved early lead, but United were rocked on their heels ten minutes later as, against the run of play, the visitors levelled things up thanks to a sensational strike from distance by Frank Wiafe Danquah.

Newcastle were unfortunate to see a perfectly good headed goal from Nile Ranger chalked off for a mysterious foul, but it was United who looked the more likely winners as the game wore on, and when Lee Martin was felled in the box by Ben Tozer with just over ten minutes remaining, they had their chance. Unfortunately, Fábio’s spot-kick was kept out by Tim Krul, and despite late chances for both sides, a winner wasn’t to be forthcoming.
