U21s: Everton 0 United 0

threat largely contained. Chris Long and Joe Williams looped volleys wide and Hope capitalised on a slip by Varela to meet a Long pass with a goal seeming certain until Amos superbly diverted the shot onto the left-hand post.

It was a vital save and provided a springboard for some overdue United attacks as Will Keane tested Stringthorpe again following a Lawrence run before the Welshman was replaced by James Weir. The woodwork came to the rescue again when Long robbed Michael Keane and belted a low drive beyond Amos' drive as the outcome remained in the balance entering the final 10 minutes.

There was to be no late drama with both sides looking a little tired as the score remained deadlocked at 0-0 on a wet night in Merseyside.

United: Amos; Varela, Thorpe, M.Keane, Fabio; Lawrence (Weir 76), Ekangamene, Anderson (Blackett 62), Cole, James; W.Keane. Subs not used: Barmby, Sutherland, Love.
