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.
