Manchester United 2-0 Middlesbrough U23s highlights and reaction after Premier League 2 win
Manchester United have moved up to second place in the Premier league 2 after a deserved 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Leigh Sports Village on Friday night.
Ricky Sprabgia’s side ended their three match winless run thanks to first-half goals from Zack Dearnley and Ethan Hamilton after a scrappy affair in which United’s greater quality proved the difference.
Tahith Chong starred throughout the match to ensure united got the win, but never managed to test the opposition goalkeeper throughout the match.
Ro-Shaun Williams and Regan Poole also deserve credit for their role in the way as they dug deep to ensure that the visitors return to the North East empty handed after a decent display on an arctic night in Greater Manchester.
