Wolves Reserves in 3-3 draw against Manchester United (clip)

Wolves Reserves played Manchester United tonight at Compton and the match ended in a 3-3 draw after Wolves had the lead with 1-0, 2-1 and 3-1. It is reported to have been a fantastic game with many of the goals coming from excellent  strikes from a distance.

The only players in the Wolves team with first team experience was Michael Kightly – in his first game after long term injury – and Mujangi-Bia. The rest of the team was our young lads from the Development Team.

United had their £3 million winger Obertan and the £9 million striker Bebe playing from start and with the rest of the ones playing tonight it probably adds up to about the cost of the Wolves Premier League team.

I only watched the second half of the game so I can not give you a complete match report. You can read it on the Wolves Official Site instead. But I’ve managed to come by a link of the highlights from the game (below).

Wolves: East, Doherty, Reckord, Harris (Cassidy 75), Batth (capt), S. Griffiths, Kightly (Hemmings 45), Rooney, Spray, L. Griffiths, Mujangi Bia (Forde 65).
Sending-Off: Spray (52 – violent conduct).

Manchester United: Devlin, Brown, Dudgeon, Norwood, Wootton, Gill, Bebe, Brady, King (Petrucci 77), Obertan, Vermul
Bookings: Dudgeon (34 – not retreating at free-kick), Gill (53 – foul), Obertan (90 – dissent).
Sending-Off: Brady (52 – violent conduct).

  1. Maybe I should also have mentioned that while Kightly only played the first half (close to score on one occasion) and Mujangi-Bia came off after 65 minutes, Obertan and Bebe played the whole game for United and that was probably what made it possible for them to get a draw in the game.

  2. Saw the game live on MUTV and thought that Wolves have some fine up and coming youngsters in their ranks. United drew level wih two counter-attacks that opened up Wolves defence. Four of the goals were brilliant long-distance shots and on the whole it was an entertaining match that gave us a glimpse of Michael Kightly after 15 months out and a fantastic finish by Geoffrey Mujangi Bia who would surely help the first team with some late substitute appearances like he did against Man. City when he nearly got a well-dererved equaliser.
