U18: Sheff Wed A United A

Manchester United's Under 18s clash at Sheffield Wednesday was abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch with the scoreline still at 0-0.

Torrential rain in South Yorkshire led to the game being called off after 35 minutes with surface water ensuring the match was becoming a lottery.

The team news was notable for the debut of midfielder Andreas Pereira, a recent recruit from PSV Eindhoven.

It was later confirmed that the result would stand as a goalless draw and the fixture would not be rearranged.

United: Joe Coll, Matthew Wilkinson, Nicolas Ioannou, Luke McCullough, Tyler Blackett, James Wilson, Luke Hendrie, Joe Rothwell, Andreas Pereira, Sam Byrne, Gyliano van Velzen. Subs: Liam Grimshaw, Liam Jacob, Mats Daehli, Kenji Gorre, Ben Pearson.
