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.
