Friday date for Under-21s

United's Under-21s look to bounce back from the opening-game defeat to Liverpool with a trip to face West Brom on Friday afternoon.

Coach Warren Joyce has hinted that those involved in the disappointing performance at Salford City Stadium will be given a chance to put that behind them at The Hawthorns but there are a number of options available in all positions.

Scott Wootton has, of course, been sold to Leeds United and was not involved in the 4-2 reverse against his former club while Federico Macheda could be in contention to play with Andreas Pereira another unlucky to miss out on Monday evening after travelling with the squad.

Adnan Januzaj, in outstanding form against Liverpool, also produced a fine display at Albion's senior ground last term when the Reds ran out 2-0 victors with goals by Sean McGinty and John Cofie, who have both since left the club.

The Baggies drew their last fixture 2-2 at Bolton Wanderers with Saido Berahino notching both goals.
