Barnsley Vs Manchester United Match Report



 Manchester United returned to winning ways tonight with a 2-0 victory over championship side Barnsley even with only 10 men. With an Early goal by Danny Welbeck, united were dominate from the start with only a few minor glitches along the ways and the eagerly anticipated goal came at the hour mark with Michael Owen having a one on one chance and hit it into the right corner with no chance of Steele saving it.

An early corner (thanks to newly signed Gabriel Obertan) created uniteds first chance of the game and first goal of the game. Anderson stepped up to the duty of delivering the corner and after the cross was delivered in young Danny Welbeck, who was unmarked, fired the ball into the back of the net with an exceptional header.

With fifty three minutes without a goal and end to end action, Owen finally hammered home with an twenty yard shot which curved into the right corner and gave united the ticket to the quarter finals and ever closer to retaining the carling cup trophy.

 Shortly after the tantalising second goal the Manchester united captain Gary Neville tackled Adam Hammill and although he won the ball the reds captain also caught Hammill with his boot high on the way out and Chris Foy was forced to pull out a red card and united were down to ten men not for the first time in the carling cup.

Ferguson’s men looked strong when attacking however, when it came to defending the reds defence had many lapses in concentration which caused the home side to have many attempts on goal including a brilliant shot from Butterfield which prompted brilliant save by foster.

Overall Uniteds performance was good but did have defensive and goalkeeping errors and looked very weak from set pieces with Barnsley captain foster coming closest to scoring but on both attempts they we either over or wide of the goal. In Addition, to the reds having a brilliant game newly signed Gabriel Obertan had an extraordinary debut game with coming close to scoring and helping setup Michael Owens goal.
