Under-21s in action

Manchester United aim to take a step closer to progressing to the semi-finals of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League when travelling to face Wolves on Friday night.

The match at AFC Telford's New Bucks Head, which being screened live by MUTV, is the last away fixture for the Reds in the Elite Group. Following a tremendous 1-0 success against leaders Tottenham last time out, racking up a seventh clean sheet in eight games, Warren Joyce's side will be full of confidence after moving up to second place in the table.

Joyce is targeting a place in the last four but wants his players to perform in every game after hitting top form in the Spurs match at the Salford City Stadium, with the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Larnell Cole, Jesse Lingard and Ryan Tunnicliffe amongst those to impress. 

"There is still a lot of work to do and we still need to win games," he told ManUtd.com. "We have some difficult ones coming up.

"We don't look past the next game really, which is against Wolves, and we really want to put on a good performance again and see what happens after that."

Wolves are currently second-from-bottom of the table but held the Reds to a 0-0 draw in the corresponding fixture despite being reduced to 10 men early on at Moss Lane.
