1-0 United (Mamam)
Did Morrison get on?
Yep, on 58 minutes.
Finished 2-0 to United. Pogba got the second.
From the sound of it, United are constrained by their own personnel imbalance. The Reserves are heavy on midfielders and light on defenders right now. Therefore all the play gets funnelled through the middle of the park. Hopefully once the season starts, a few more of the first teamers will be getting a run out to add a bit more punch. Still you can't complain when they've registered 20 goals in 8 matches (even if two thumpings accounted for 11 of the goals!).
Funny to see Mamam score, his inclusions a bit odd though I wonder what's going on there. He can't seriously be in contention for a contract can he?
Good to see Pogba scoring though, even better to see Morrison back in the fold.
He's 23, been on the books and didn't make it, and has been playing in the Belgian third division apparently. Not a usual transfer by any clubs standards. I can't say I've heard of him doing anything notable since, so it's a big ask for someone who's tried and failed already to force his way through the large amount of midfielders we've got at reserve level and then step up to table topping English football.
I'd rather see Drinkwater/Petrucci/Morrison/Pogba and whoever else get the game time I guess.
The Reserves play another match in Wales this evening. They're up against Bangor City.
Bangor City Football Club - Clwb Peldroed Dinas Bangor
According to United's website, the squad will be the same one that played in Llanelli a couple of days ago. In the spirit of squad rotation (I never get the line-up exactly correct!) I'm going for this XI tonight .........
Will Keane not playing tonight...minor back complaint but will be back in training in a few days! #mufc
Lad at the game!
Well that's one I got right then! Keane not in the XI.
United: Johnstone, Lingard, Giverin, Fryers, Fornasier, Drinkwater, Maman, Morrison, Cofie, Petrucci, Pogba
Subs: Cole, Amos, Leao, Vermilj.
1-0 United (Cofie)
Volley, from just inside the box.
Jesse's turn to fill in at right back?? I'll never guess the Reserves XI 100%!!
Mix up at the back, after Giverin gave the ball away.
2-1 United (Cofie)
Through ball from Pogba, Cofie fired it into the bottom corner.
Nice to see John Cofie back to his scoring ways. On his day he's a lethal striker.
3-1 United (MORRISON)
Break from United, Pogba squares it for Ravel, to finish.
morrison :groupwave reversed:
game ended 3-1?
Good to see Morrison back playing and among the goalscorers. Two assists for Pogba, nice.
PHEW! Very pleased to see Morrison playing...was worried he might be rioting and looting with the scrotes. T'ank the lord!
