With 45 minutes played, Manchester United Reserves are drawing 1-1 with Wigan Reserves following a goal from Anderson, after Wigan had taken the lead!

He burst in to the box, took on a couple of players, then struck with force with his left foot to beat the keeper at his near post.

Paddy Crerand was impressed with Anderson’s performance, with him pushing forward a lot and playing some great passes. Playing with the youngsters may be a bit of a humbling experience for our Brazilian but something he is probably in need of. For him to work so hard for the Reserves is a good sign though and hopefully we can really start to see him fulfil his potential in the first team.

The game was fast pace and rough, with 18 fouls in the first half! The tempo remained up beat in the second half, with both keepers, particularly Wigan’s forced in to making saves. Gary Neville and Fabio da Silva were also playing, with the game finishing 2-1.

So come on Ando, let’s start scoring them when they count!
