Newcastle 3 United 3: Macheda treble earns Reds a point as Neville makes latest comeback

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve side maintained second place in the Premier Reserve League North and kept their slim title hopes alive in a thrilling clash with Newcastle United at St. James Park… but only just! The Reds twice fought back from a goal behind in the second half with strikes from Kiko Macheda, the second of those coming with just a minute left on the clock and completing the 17 year-old Italian’s first reserve hattrick.

Macheda had earlier given United (of the Manchester variety for the purposes of this report) the lead from the penalty spot before goals from Spanish striker Xisco (also from the spot) and Mark Doninger either side of half-time had put the hosts 2-1 up. Macheda’s first equaliser looked to have earned the Reds at least a point but he had to do it all over again after former Red Danny Guthrie looked to have pinched all three for the Magpies in the dying minutes. The draw was fully deserved on United’s part, and there was further good news in the form of club captain Gary Neville getting almost an hour of football under his belt on the way back from injury.
