United U-21s in the play-offs

Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 20.52.37Manchester United are in to the end of season play-offs after beating Reading 3-2 away. Amos, Varela, McNair, Ekangamene, James, Rowley, Pearson, Janko, Rothwell, A.Pereira and Wilson were in the starting line-up.

Chelsea, Liverpool, United and Fulham currently make up the top four in the table, although City could replace Fulham on goal difference.

James Wilson scored his 8th goal of the season in the first half which was a lead United took in to the second half.

Reading then equalised in the second half before going 2-1 up with ten minutes left to play. A few minutes later, James Weir then equalised for United after a mistake from the keeper.

There were then three minutes of injury time and in the very final seconds, defender Patrick McNair scored a great goal from the outside of the box to win the game for United.

    Congrats to Warren Joyce and all the lads. Top result!
    Such a tough job with all the loans etc.

    Love the youngsters, always have.

    That lad Wilson! Looking the TOP prospect innit!

  6. Blacksocks says:

    Well done lads – great result. A young team as well with so many out on loan.

    Wilson continues to garner great reviews too – wonder if a season on loan in the championship beckons for him next season?

  7. Tommy says:

    I was their top result, not a great performance, I thought we had blown it when they went 2 1 up but thanks to their keeper and a top strike from centre half Paddy McNail with our last kick of the game, We have the scousers in the semis at analfield on Friday come on you young red men, only downside is James Wilson, I love the guy to bits but he rarely completes 90minutes due to injury it is a worry I must say
